Underworld don Chhota Rajan was arrested on Sunday in Bali after evading capture for 20 years, Agence France-Presse reported. After receiving a tip-off from the Australian police, Indonesian authorities picked him up at the airport while he was heading to a popular holiday resort in the city. The Australian police confirmed last month that Rajan had been living in Canberra incognito. Rajan, whose real name is Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, was a key aide of Dawood Ibrahim, the leader of the Indian crime syndicate known as D-company. Home minister Rajnath Singh and the Central Bureau of Investigation in India confirmed the arrest, the Press Trust of India reported.

Interpol had sent out a warrant for Rajan’s arrest in 1995 as he was accused in many cases of murder, extortion, smuggling and drug trafficking, among others. On Monday, Interpol authorities were in touch with the Indian police, but it is unclear if and when he is being extradited to India.
