What is surprising is that whenever Malkhan Singh visits the city, a huge crowd gathers near him to see him up close, but this time the crowd didn’t pay any attention to him.

He is over six feet tall, has long moustache, long hair, and hangs a gun on his shoulders, but this time he looked helpless.

He took to a life with arms in 1972. The dacoit and his gang were the most feared in the region and had amassed a total of 94 police cases, including 18 cases of dacoity, 28 of kidnapping, 19 of attempt to murder and 17 cases of murder registered against him in the three states of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. In 1982, he surrendered to the then Arjun Singh government in the state.

Malkhan Singh has given up his ways and now lives in Gwalior as a simple man. He enjoys a celeb like status, whenever he visits Gwalior.

Meanwhile, India’s cash crisis has stretched into its third day as ATMs ran dry and people stood for hours in long lines to exchange their now-defunct notes, while a government official said the shortages will continue into December.

Armed soldiers and security officers were deployed outside banks to manage the growing crowds, who so far have waited patiently to exchange their currency. Banks are restricting withdrawals to Rs 4,000 per person, adding to the cash shortages.

Moreover, the ATMs are unprepared to dispense the new Rs 500 and Rs 2000 notes which is compounding the problem.
