The Indian Embassy is trying for earliest air slot to fly but there might be a delay due to pending commercial flights.


Home Minister Rajnath Singh said, "Chhota Rajan will come soon."


According to the sources, Rajan will be sent to India from Bali on a special flight.


Sources had suggested that the first agency that will question the gangster post his arrival in India is the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). CBI officials are likely to escort Rajan from Delhi IGI airport to the CBI headquarters in the national capital where he is expected to be questioned.
