The Bombay High Court has designated a special court to conduct the trials of cases in which the deported gangster Chhota Rajan is an accused.

“The government had sought permission in this regard, and now the High Court has designated a court in Mumbai,” said a highly placed source.

A government notification regarding the new court would be issued in a day or two. Chhota Rajan is an accused in around 70 cases in Maharashtra, including in the murder of journalist J Dey.

Last month, the special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act court had issued a production warrant against him and directed the Tihar Jail officials in Delhi to produce him on January 7.

Rajan was arrested at Bali airport in Indonesia on October 25 last year after he arrived there from Australia. He was later deported to India. The Maharashtra government has handed over all its cases against him to the CBI.
