Indian Predator: Murder in a Courtroom – About Akku Yadav
For the unaware, criminal Akku Yadav was born in 1970s and grew near Nagpur’s Kasturba Nagar slum known to have housed many other minor criminals. As he grew up, Yadav became a name popular in the local criminal empire, and with his own gang, he began extorting people with robbery of items like vehicles, phones, homes, etc. This became his primary source of income, however, over the years, he was involved in cases related to kidnapping, rape, and others.
Yadav became a popular name among the slum-dwellers and was accused of more than 40 rape cases and over three murders. Fear about his presence spreads soon as he was said to be involved in sexually assaulting women, of all ages, in almost every alternate house. However, police identified a casteist undertone in these crime cases with many women being Dalits.
Despite a long list of criminal cases, Yadav remained in the good books of several police officers and was popular to have offered bribes of all kinds to the police. With several arrests and allegations accusing him, the police were not able to imprison him which bothered the victims, families and other residents who have testimonies which soon shed light on the negligent behaviour by the police and the system.
Yadav was arrested over 14 times and was detained in 1999 under the Maharashtra state’s preventive detention law.
