Well it happened that I was chattinmg with some people and I came across a person who seemed to know this “underworld” pretty well . The following is inspired by his words .
Who is the “don”
Currently the “don” of bangalore is “Agni Sridhar” . He is a bald guy and always wears a Rayban to prevent the shine of eyes from striking you and he resides in Padmanabhanagar .
Why would anyone go to a don
Normally in businesses , we come across lot of defaulters . Say you are a businessman and say some “B” owes you money . If you go to court unnecessarily the case gets streched and money loses its value along with time . So there is no use of fighting for 50 Lakhs in court for 5 years .. Instead they come to “don” .He acts as a standing judge .. and can extort .. do whatever he want to give you justice. He takes a cut in the money
Wouldnt the defaulters go to don for rescue ??
Yes , they do come .. and generally the deals happens between two dons and the lender and defaulter dont do any talking .. They abide by the don’s words .. [ Thats the rule] .
Where can you find the Dons ??
Actually every area has a don .. for eg Vijaynagar has Govinda .. etc . These dons also maintain offices .. One such office is near Railway track of Vijaynagar . Also all members meet in Kadamba hotel of basweshwarnagar after 8 . It is said that “Agni Sridhar” himself comes to this Kadmaba hotel .. to preside over important decisions . It is also said that “chota mota kaam” gets settled by a phone call .
Wouldnt Police interrupt ?? Cant you approach police ??
Yes ofcourse you can …. But see the apathy .. the Notary which sit in front of utility building has to pay a hafta of Rs 200 per day ( not a joke) . The place where justice is fought , where you can expect utmost security .. people pay hafta to dons .. ( not police constables) .
Is this the only source of money ??
No not all .. nowadays best business the dons are entering is “newspaper/journals” .. They publish the unheard scenes and stories [ ya even Ravi belegare was a don] .
How to escape when u are attacked by hooligans ?
Tell them You r “Agni Sridhar’s ” gang member 🙂 or Somanna’s shishya 🙂
