Dreaded dacoit of Madhya Pradesh's Chambal region, Dhara Singh aka Surendra Singh, wanted in many cases in the state, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan has been arrested, a top police official said on Saturday.
Actress Jaya Bachchan, daughter of noted journalist and writer Taroon Coomar Bhaduri, who chronicled the lives of the Chambal valley dacoits in central India, says though all films made on dacoits were based on her father's works, no one gave him any credit.
The Delhi High Court is likely to hear Tuesday the plea of city police challenging the acquittal of Sher Singh Rana, the lone convict in the sensational murder of bandit-turned-Lok Sabha member Phoolan Devi here in 2001, from the charge of criminal conspiracy.
Even the hardest of hearts
can melt! In an incident which seems to be straight from a
story book, a housewife`s guts moved a dacoit so much so that
he made her his sister and presented her jewellery and cash.
