With Dawood Ibrahim's number one man and underworld don Chhota Shakeel vowing to kill rival don Chhota Rajan, Indian security forces have beefed up security arrangements to safeguard Rajan who was arrested in Bali last week. .

Following Shakeel's threat, elaborate security arrangements are being made at the police headquarters at Crawford market, Mumbai where Rajan is expected to be lodged for a few days once he comes back to India.

Mumbai police commissioner Ahmad Javed and joint commissioner Deven Bharti have conducted a review and have decided to enhance security at the entry and exit points. The home department is also considering the police's proposal to install video conferencing facility at the headquarters.

It is expected that the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel will be deployed at the headquarters.

Rajan, who has been absconding for nearly three decades, is wanted in at least 75 cases in Mumbai. Most of cases registered against him are under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA), Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) and under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act (MCOCA).
