Poached.

On 9th August,2006 the Times of India on its front page said this:

"Imbali Jose is the new Veerappan. The forest police are now seeking him in the Nilgiris, where his predecessor had made a name killing tuskers and men."

On 11th August, 2006, the Times of India on its front page says he's dead. Here:

"Forest officials said Jose was suffering from kidney failure apart from a few other ailments. He was cremated on Thursday at his village, Pulpally, in Waynad district of Kerala."

That is funny.

  • Heh.

    The print version had this gem to add:

    "We are verifying the news of his death. In Sept. 2004, too, CID officials received a message that the poacher had died. But on verification, they found that another poacher by the same name had died."

    Twins? Triplets?
