Mumbai Police spokesperson Dhananjay Kulkarni said, "One officer from our force has left for Delhi today, who would be briefing Home Ministry with reference to the communique made
to us on Tuesday."

The Union Home Ministry had asked Mumbai Police to make a detailed documentation of the offences committed by the arrested fugitive in his home turf where he is wanted in over 75 cases including suspected role in murder of investigative journalist J Dey.

Following the directives, the Crime Branch had formed a team to compile the history of the 55-year-old gangster, who had been on the run for two decades. On whether the officer concerned was going to Delhi along with the dossier, Kulkarni refused to divulge any details.

However, according to another officer, privy to the developments, documenting a big dossier would take time but a squad of Mumbai Police Crime Branch would be part of the team which would go to Bali to bring back Rajan.

The one-time trusted aide of terrorist and crime boss Dawood Ibrahim, Rajan is wanted in scores of criminal offences ranging from murder and extortion to smuggling and drug trafficking. The cases in which Rajan's involvement is suspected o include the murder of crime reporter J Dey in June 2011.

Out of the 75 cases Rajan is facing, four are registered under Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA), one under Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) and over 20 cases under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).
