I just hear that Veerappan was shot dead with three of his men in an encounter with the STF.
Finally, the end of a legend?
Man, how I wish they had got him alive. Dead men tell no tales, just news stories for a week.
And with history always being Winners version, Veerappan will be recorded as a murderous bandit for eternity. But was he really as evil as the cops paint him out to be? Who were the politicians aiding him all these years? Was he just a puppet? We will never know!
For now I can only hope that this bit of information is a hoax and he’s captured alive someday!
