Veerappan: Chasing the Brigand by K Vijay Kumar

No other bandit in recent times has caught the public’s imagination as much as Koose Muniswamy Veerappan. Be it his trademark mustache, stories of his daring escapades or his ruthless massacre of officers, Veerappan continues to fascinate, even 13 years after his death.

The book Veerappan: Chasing the Brigand is an incisive and lucid account of the rise and fall of India’s most dreaded forest brigand. Chronicled by K. Vijay Kumar, IPS, the man who spearheaded the Tamil Nadu STF (Special Task Force) that planned and executed the dreaded bandit’s encounter, this book Veerappan: Chasing the Brigand relives the various incidents that shaped Veerappan’s life – from his birth in Gopinatham in 1952 to his death in 2004 in a shootout in Padi. It traces his dramatic rise from a sandalwood smuggler and small-time poacher to a brutal fugitive who held three states to ransom for two decades. The ruthless killings and high-profile kidnappings masterminded by Veerappan, including the 108-day ordeal involving Kannada cinema superstar, Dr Rajkumar, are described in fascinating detail.
