This is IPS officer Shivdeep Waman Lande aka ‘Singham of Bihar’. He is a major thorn in Bihar’s mafia world.
Despite having an electrical engineering degree under his belt, Lande preferred to serve his country and took up civil services examination and graduated as an IPS Officer from 2006 Batch.
Currently serving as the SP for the Special Task Force (STF) in Patna, Lande is not only popular amongst his colleagues but also among civil service aspirants.
His popularity among the people can be seen by that fact that he reportedly received more than 2000 text-messages on his phone the day he was transferred from Patna to Araria. People took out a candle light march demanding his return.
The Patna’s Singham, as he is known, made a name for himself in Araria with his operations against criminals and corrupt cops.
His most famous operation was against eve-teasers, which ensured that girls didn’t fear while stepping out of their homes.
Lande is also known for his benevolence, with some reports even indicating that he donates 60 per cent of his monthly salary to an NGO that takes care of hostel needs for poor students and arranges marriage for poor girls who can’t afford it.
But Lande is not just brawn and heart. Here is our Singham showing his dancing skills.
