BALI, Indonesia – Indonesian police say an alleged Indian crime boss being held on the resort island of Bali will soon be deported.
Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, known in India as "Chotta Rajan," was on Interpol's most wanted list for two decades. He was arrested Oct. 25 when he arrived at Bali's airport from Sydney.
Police Maj. Pande Sugiarta said Tuesday that preparations are underway for Nikalje's deportation to India later in the day.
