Chhota Rajan's arch-rival Shakeel Shaikh alias Chhota Shakeel has claimed credit for his arrest in Indonesia. According to a TOI report, Shakeel said that Rajan was forced to flee to Indonesia, which led to his arrest because of the pressure from his people.

"My boys were on the job in Fiji last week, and we had jammed him in his hideouts. He was forced to flee to Indonesia, which led to his arrest. The D Company is not happy with his arrest and our enmity does not end here. I want to eliminate him, and I will not rest. Even if he is deported my operation against him will continue," The report quoted Shakeel as saying.
Shakeel also said that he did not trust the Indian government which has been pampering Rajan and taking his help against his rivals. "What is the guarantee that he will face trial and be convicted? His detention or arrest is not our subject. Our funda (motto) is very clear: Dushman khatam ho (elimination of rival). I will not spare him wherever he is," said Shakeel.
Dawood's lieutenant Shakeel, who has being trying to kill Rajan ever since the split in the gang occurred in the aftermath of the 1993 serial blasts, had carried out an attack on Rajan in Bangkok in September 2000. Rajan was seriously injured and hospitalized. Later, Rajan fled from the hospital with the help of his confidants.
