You’re incompetent, Chhota Rajan sneers at CBI

img-dec2015-27They say that crime is usually a step ahead of the law. Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje aka Chhota Rajan was certainly ahead of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) when he was in their custody, stationed in the investigation chamber in the organisation’s headquarters. Now, Chhota Rajan is a dream catch (it is said that Ajit Doval, the 70-year-old National Security Adviser, was the brains behind his arrest, having told some people he was in touch with the Indonesian authorities a few days before the news broke) for an investigation agency. When an international gangster is nabbed, a complete dossier is immediately readied for the interrogation. But the CBI was not equipped to interrogate him (who ordered that the agency should carry out the interrogation has not been disclosed). Sources say that Chhota Rajan realised in no time that his interrogators were novices regarding the international underworld. So, one day, during his interrogation, he bluntly told the CBI men that they were not competent enough to interrogate him and he would only speak to senior Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials with domain knowledge of global crime. The CBI officials did not want to call the Mumbai cops as they were very harsh with the gangster when they interacted with him in the first phase. The second problem was that he could not be sent to Mumbai. Now Chhota Rajan is housed in Tihar Jail Barrack No 2.
