He was part of noted criminal Dawood Ibrahim’s D company before splitting from the group in 1993 and forming a gang of his own which frequently tussled with his formed crime organisation.

Mumbai-born Rajan, once a close confidant-turned-rival of underworld gang lord Dawood, has said that he is not afraid of Dawood, the prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.
