Robin Hood’s Dead

You’ve got to admire these types of people… as long as they’re doing things with good intent… I don’t know any more about this man than the article below states, but I’ve still got respect I think for him.  I always liked Robin Hood

NEW DELHI ā€” Indian police killed one of the country’s most notorious bandits Sunday — a man who ruled the ravines and forests of central India through a mixture of fear and love for three decades, with many hailing him as a modern-day Robin Hood.

Shiv Kumar, also known by the alias Dadua, led one of the few remaining bands of outlaws that have roamed central India for centuries, their exploits romanticized in Bollywood movies.

Kumar, thought to be in his 60s, was wanted in more than 200 cases of kidnapping, extortion and murder and had a bounty on his head of more than $12,000, a small fortune in this region.

A.K. Jain, inspector general of the police special task force, said Kumar was slain after a fierce battle between police and bandits. He was identified by villagers, Jain said.

Four of his accomplices were also killed in the battle in the Chitrakoot region, about 400 miles southwest of New Delhi, Jain said.
