The special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act court in Mumbai on Tuesday issued a warrant against gangster Chhota Rajan and another accused in the journalist J Dey murder case. The court directed Delhi’s Tihar jail officials to ensure that Rajan is present in the court on January 7.
“The court has ordered a joint trial,” special public prosecutor Dileep Shah told PTI. The judge AL Pansare observed that the trial cannot be deferred as the Bombay high court had expedited it, Shah said.
“Moreover, no one from the CBI has been coming to the court to apprise the court about their progress in the investigation,” Shah added.
“The court said it will frame charges against him and start the trial on the same day,” said the prosecutor.
