Sources from the CBI said on Thursday they took over three different cases, in which police had filed charge-sheets naming Rajan and his associates. Sources revealed that CBI has taken over Bandra, Khar and Juhu police station cases.

The first case was registered at Khar police station in 1995, wherein one Sham Sunder Raj was shot dead. Khar police had filed the charge-sheet against Rajan and his associates under Sections 307, 302, 34, of Indian Penal Code and 3, 25 of Indian Arms Act.

In the second case, which was registered at Bandra police station in 1999, unknown persons opened fire at the owner of MK Builders, Majid Khan, his associates, and some pedestrians, and killed three persons. A charge-sheet was filed by the ACP Bandra division before a special designated MCOCA court against Rajan and others under Sections 302, 307, 34 of IPC and 3, 5, 25 of Arms Act.
