Although Chhota Rajan, once a close confidante-turned-rival of Dawood Ibrahim, has said that he is not afraid of the India's most wanted terrorist, yet the gangster very well knows that his life is under threat.

Reports suggest that Dawood's men have also hired local shooters to kill Chhota Rajan before he could board plane to be extradited to India. 

Earlier, Dawood Ibrahim’s closest aide Chhota Shakeel had told a newspaper that he would kill Chhota Rajan before this Diwali.

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 in Bali last week on the basis of a Red Corner Notice from Interpol and following a tip-off by Australian authorities to the police in Indonesia.

Rajan was travelling with the identity of Mohan Kumar with passport number G9273860 when he was apprehended at the airport here after arriving on a Garuda Indonesia flight GA715.

Rajan, whose original name is Rajendra Sadashiv Nikhalje, has been questioned by the Indonesian police several times in the last few days to confirm his identity and criminal acts in India.
