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.
