Mumbai/New Delhi: A Delhi court on Friday directed the CBI to consider the plea of arrested mafia don Rajendra S. Nikhalje alias Chhota Rajan's sisters, seeking to meet their brother "for performing some rituals for Bhai Dooj".
Special Judge Vinod Kumar in a hearing at his north Delhi residence directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigating officer to consider the application of Chhota Rajan's sisters - Sunita Chavan and Malini Sakpal.
Rajan's sister's counsel, advocate Rajiv Jai, said that the court has asked them to approach the CBI with their application.
Rajan is currently in CBI custody in a fake passport case. He was arrested in Indonesia and brought to India earlier of this month.
His sisters said they never met their brother who was brought back to India after 27 years.
After remaining away from the country for so many years, now they wish to meet and bless him, their application said.
Both the sisters, who live in Maharashtra, have reached New Delhi where Chhota Rajan is lodged.
