Mumbai, Jan. 7 (ANI): Underworld don Chhota Rajan was on Thursday sent to judicial custody in connection with journalist Jyotirmoy Dey’s murder case.
Rajan, who is wanted in 71 cases in Maharashtra, was produced before a special MCOCA Court via video conferencing today.
He has asked for some time from the court to engage a lawyer for himself.
A Delhi Court had earlier allowed the CBI to conduct hearing against Rajan via video conferencing, observing that the underworld don has serious threat to his life.
In November last year, Rajan was brought to New Delhi in a special aircraft after being deported from Indonesia.
In a surprise move, the Maharashtra Government had earlier transferred all cases related to the gangster to the CBI. (ANI)
