Underworld don Chhota Rajan's brother Deepak Nikalje has been listed as a wanted accused along with 150 others in a rioting case in Mumbai, police said on Thursday.

Deepak, along with other protestors, allegedly pelted stones at vehicles in Suman Nagar in north-east Mumbai on Wednesday while protesting the vandalisation of an Ambedkar statue in Kanpur, they said.

He had unsuccessfully fought the 2004 Assembly election on a Republican Party of India ticket from the Chembur constituency.

Deepak also produced the hit Bollywood movie Vaastav based on the life of his brother Rajan Nikalje alias Chhota Rajan.

Meanwhile, the Central Railway has cancelled two trains between Pune and Mumbai on Friday.

The 2124 Pune-Mumbai Deccan Queen and 1007 Mumbai-Pune Deccan Express stand cancelled for December 1, a railway official said in Pune on Thursday evening.

Though no official reason was given for the cancellation, the decision comes in the wake of the setting ablaze of five compartments of Deccan Queen near Mumbai by protestors on Thursday.
