Chhota Rajan’s deportation deferred due to airport closure

BALI: Underworld don Chhota Rajan’s deportation was deferred today due to the closure of the airport here as a result of the spewing of volcanic ash from a nearby mountain.
55-year-old Rajan was to be taken to India by a special aircraft tonight but he continued to be in detention in Denpasar.
Police Major Pande Sugiarta said the deportation was delayed until tomorrow because of volcanic ash spewing from Mount Rinjan on nearby Lombok Island. The Ngurah Rai International Airport here was closed due to the spewing of volcanic ash.
It is expected that Rajan, who was arrested in this popular tourist town on his arrival from Australia on October 25, would be deported tomorrow if conditions allow, sources said.
The Indian agencies were keen that the deportation takes place at the earliest and had put in a request to Indonesian authorities on Sunday itself, sources said. (AGENCIES)
