Demonetisation: When dreaded dacoits came to stand in line at banks

Read full story
Demonetisation has literally forced everyone in the country to line infront of banks to get their old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes exchanged. Even a dreaded dacoit couldn’t escape from this.

In Gwalior, Malkhan Singh- a feared dacoit from 70s and 80s, was seen standing in a line at bank branch to get his currency exchanged. This came as an amusement to the people who were standing in line with him.

Malkhan was one of the most feared outlaws of the Chambal ravines. He along with his gang had 94 police cases against them which included 18 cases of dacoity, 28 of kidnapping, 19 of attempt to murder and 17 cases of murder.

He and his gang then surrendered before the then chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, Arjun Singh, in 1983.

The former bandit was recently in news over his biopic being shot by actor-director Mukesh R Chauksey.

Post his surrender, Singh has been leading peaceful life in his native village engaging in farming and taking part frequently in religious conventions.
