Salem: Wife of slain forest brigand Veerappan appealed to the Tamil Nadu government to wrap up a case that has been pending against her for more than ten years.

Muthulakshmi, who was released on bail on Apr 26, told media persons in Mettur taluk in the district yesterday that in addition to imprisonment and "police torture", she had spent a long time away from her children.

Muthulakshmi appealed to whoever next came to power in Tamil Nadu to take action to wrap up the case against her.

The allegation against Muthulakshmi is in connection with the sharing of money alleged to have been paid as ransom for release of Kannada thespian Rajkumar, who was kidnapped by Veerappam in 2000.

Muthulakshmi said her priority now was the welfare of her family to serve the tribal population in the forest.
