Indian police killed one of the country's most notorious bandits on Sunday - a man who for three decades ruled the ravines and forests of central India through a mixture of fear and love, with many hailing him as a modern-day Robin Hood. Shiv Kumar, also known by the alias Dadua, led one of the few remaining bands of outlaws who for centuries have roamed central India, and whose exploits have been romanticized in several Bollywood movies. Thought to be in his 60s, Kumar was wanted in connection with more than 200 cases of kidnapping, extortion and murder and had a reward on his head of 500,000 rupees (US$12,300; €8,950), a small fortune in this region.
