Chhota Rajan was an aide to intelligence agencies to counter Dawood
A day after the infamous don
In 2005, the agency had reportedly sent two Rajan aides - Vicky Malhotra and the late Farid Tanasha- to eliminate Dawood in Karachi.
Rajan was instrumental in eliminating certain ISI and Dawood aides, including Nepal MLA Dilshad Mirza Baig, ISI mastermind Khalid Masood, Parvez Tanda in Nepal- all with the help of Indian intelligence. There were unconfirmed reports that Rajan was involved in the killing of Takiuddin Wahid Khan of East-West Airlines, suspected to be close to Dawood. He also allegedly planned the killing of Nepal cable operator Jamim Shah, another D-Company aide.
Senior police officials said Rajan always tried to portray himself as "a patriotic Hindu don" after his split from Dawood following the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai.
