He was attacked by a Chhota Shakeel gang member inside the jail by a revolver that was reportedly brought to the jail inside a birthday cake.

The gangster was take to a Navi Mumbai hospital where the bullet was taken out and treatment was given to him. “He was admitted and treated at the MGM Hospital, Vashi last (Thursday) evening and kept there overnight. The accused has been transferred back to TCJ this morning. There is no cause for any concern on his health condition”, a Mumbai police official said. To a query whether he would be shifted elsewhere from Taloja jail, the official declined to comment saying the decision would be taken by the jail administration in consultation with the home department. Salem – accused in the 1993 Mumbai serials blasts and other major cases – was attacked inside a jail for the second time in four years after he was deported from Portugal in 2005.

While detailing the incident a top police official in Mumbai said, “The motive behind the attack, how the weapon reached inside the jail and other related issues are being investigated”.

Now the gangster, who was extradited from Portugal on many condition, is planning to approach Portugal to scrap the agreement with India about his extradition. The incident happened in the high-security Taloja jail in Navi Mumbai, Raigad district, sending shock-waves in the police and jail security echelons. Jagtap, known as JD in mafia circles, is said to be a close aide of Vijay Shetty, rival of the absconding mafia don Chhota Rajan Nikhalje. Jagtap, sentenced for the killing of a prominent criminal lawyer Shahid Azmi, had been detected carrying a gun in 2011 when he was attending a court hearing. On Thursday, he had been taken for a court hearing and investigators are probing whether the weapon was slipped to him sometime during the day. This is not the first incident of attack against the underworld don, he was attacked three years ago too in the jail premises.
