Once when Veerappan was caught in the jungle and was about to be shot in his head, he immediately called up some VVIP from his phone, who told the police marksmen with the gun to lower his rifle and Veerappan just walked away and he was so easily let go.

Despite being the most wanted dacoit, Veerappan had his own small army, which at one point targeted and shot over hundreds of people.

Interestingly, when Veerappan got married in 1991 to a shepherdess named Muthulakshmi, it was his moustache and notoriety that got her attracted to this bandit.

After marrying Veerappan, his wife Muthulaxmi used to run a small grocery shop and never gave the impress that they were affluent enough to run a family. Even their daughter Vidyarani looked like any kid from a lower middle class family.

Reportedly, Veerappan and his wife even strangled one of their kids soon after birth because she was their third successive girl. After that, he didn't plan any more kids.

Even when Veerappan has all the money that he needed to feed his family, his only indulgence used to be an old tape recorder, a black and white television and some dirty movie cassettes. His shabby and ill fitting clothes were of course always a part of his wardrobe.
