Friends, After getting to read about DEADLY SOMA which is one of the most interesting UNDERWORLD stories. I would like to present some info on Bengaluru Underworld. This is just to know the interesting happenings which infact made Bengaluru Black Black Road Red Red color and not to follow. Bengalooruâ€™s underworld dates back to the late 1960s, when Kodigehalli Mune Gowda became the first underworld don.In the beginning he controlled all of Bangalore, and his basic revenue source was hafta from brothels and arrack shops. In the â€˜70s, Kotwal Ramachandra and Jayaraj entered the field. Wine shops.massage parlours,game parlours were added to the list. They had political affiliations.The scene changed in the 1980s and â€˜90s, when young turks entered the field like Muthappa Rai, Sridhar(Agni Shridhar), Boot House Kumar or Oil Kumar, Bekkina Kannu Rajendra, Srirampura Kitty, Jedarahalli Krishnappa, Pushpa, Kala Pathar and Ele Naga emerged. At the same time, the slum underworld became active, with Abu Shair, Koli Fayaz, Tanvir, Ishtiyak, Sajjad, Nazir,hibbath, Tarakari Khaleel and Chappal Hamid. Bangalore was virtually a battleground, as these operators stretched their businesses to all possible revenue earning sectors This thread is for Information and debate sake.
