Mumbai police today claimed to have foiled a deadly gang war, with the arrest of two close aides of Chhota Shakeel gang, who allegedly conspired to gun down two key lieutenants of a rival group headed by Chhota Rajan.

D K Rao, who has a history of recruiting sharpshooters and lieutenants for mafia don Chhota Rajan gang, was one of the two targets, police said. Chhota Shakeel allegedly planned to kill Rao in the sessions court premises here, when he was brought for hearing from Taloja jail in the neighbouring Navi Mumbai city, they said.

"Acting on a tip-off, a trap was laid and the accused Mohammed Mahir Siddhique, 30, and Akhtar Jamal Khan, 35, who are both associates of gangster Chhota Shakeel were arrested near Noor Hotel at Dharavi in Central Mumbai yesterday," Sadanand Date, Joint Police Commissioner (crime) said.
