About The Book

"No other bandit in recent times has captured the public's imagination as much as KooseMuniswamy Veerappan. Be it his trademark moustache, stories of his daring escapades or hisruthless massacre of officers, Veerappan continues to fascinate, even thirteen years after his death.Veerappan: Chasing the Brigand is a lucid and incisive account of the rise and fall of India's mostdreaded forest brigand. Chronicled by K. Vijay Kumar, IPS, the man who spearheaded the TamilNadu Special Task Force (STF) that planned and executed the dreaded bandit's encounter, thebook relives the various incidents that shaped Veerappan's life – from his birth in Gopinathamin 1952 to his death in 2004 in a shootout in Padi. It traces his dramatic rise from a small-time poacher and sandalwood smuggler to a brutal fugitive who held three states to ransom fortwo decades. The ruthless killings and high-profile kidnappings masterminded by Veerappan,including the 108-day ordeal involving Kannada cinema superstar, Dr Rajkumar, are describedin fascinating detail. Veerappan: Chasing the Brigand is the most authentic account of the life andtimes of the dreaded outlaw."
