With underworld don Chhota Rajan in CBI custody, his Maharashtra-based sisters have appealed to the “compassionate” side of the court, to “be allowed to meet” their brother for “Bhai Dooj” “after 27 years”.
The application, filed through advocates Rajiv Jai and Gajinder Kumar, states that the two women — Sunita Sakkharam Chavan and Malini Sakpal — are the “real sisters” of Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, alias Chhota Rajan, and “have not met their brother for the past so many years,” and “ wish to bless him”.
The sisters have also sought permission to be accompanied by “their son in law Anil Menon” as they are physically infirm.
The plea was filed before the Sessions court at New Delhi on Thursday. Special CBI Judge OP Saini has sent the application to the prosecution and has fixed it for hearing before Special Judge Vinod Kumar at his residence on Friday morning.
