Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed four new cases on Wednesday against underworld don Chhota Rajan and his associates for murder, attempt to murder, extortion and criminal conspiracy. CBI has taken over the Maharashtra police case after the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) transferred it to the premier investigative agency. In the absence of an extradition treaty, the Indian authorities have already provided documents to their Indonesian counterparts about Rajan's Indian identity to facilitate his deportation. In 2000, there was an attempt on Rajan's life when Dawood's men tracked him down to a hotel in Bangkok but he managed a dramatic escape. Rajan was arrested on a Red Corner Notice by Interpol after eluding law enforcement agencies for over two decades.
