The "thrilling" history of a devoted family.
Bangalore: In the early part of the decade, a family of four brothers had wreaked a trail of crime and terror across Bangalore. While Syed Nasru was killed in an encounter in 2005, another was shot at on Sunday.
Syed Wasim is one of the most notorious rowdies to haunt the city streets, along with his brothers, Nasru, Zabi and Zafru. Nasru was a terror among liveband artistes, accused of raping over 20 women, and behind many robberies and a couple of murders. Police said Nasru, his brothers, and associates Ilias, Zameel, Mustafa, Akmal and Munna, were involved in over 57 cases of kidnap and extortion, among others.
Nasru, who was arrested for robbery by Hebbal police in 1998, had escaped from Upparpet police station.
The Bangalore police, who were tired of Nasru’s growing menace, caught up with him in Anekal on May 6, 2005. The team headed by then CCB ACP B K Shivaram and police inspectors S K Umesh, Rathanakar Shetty and Nanjunde Gowda, surrounded the house located in Weavers’ Colony and ordered Nasru to surrender.
Even then, Nasru, Wasim and the others had tried to attack the policemen with knives and swords. Nasru had hit inspector Rathnakar Shetty on his neck. Wasim was trying to injure a head constable, which prompted the police to open fire in self-defence. As a result, Nasru and Wasim sustained two bullet injuries. While Nasru died a little later, Wasim battled for life for 30 days in hospital, and sent to jail.
