Badan Singh ‘Baddo’ - most wanted gangster in Uttar Pradesh

The life and crimes of Uttar Pradesh criminal mastermind Badan Singh ‘Baddo’ aren’t far from Bollywood. He is the most wanted gangster in Uttar Pradesh. Baddo was serving a life sentence for the murder of an associate in 1996 when he escaped the clutches of six police while in transit from Fatehgarh Central Jail to a court in Ghaziabad.
Badan Singh gave the slip to cops who had been drugged and plied with booze at a party sponsored by him at his hotel. After the cops got drunk and slept, Badan Singh and his three accomplices fled. 10 months later and his location was last thought to be the Netherlands.

Police have been chasing Baddo but have miserably failed in finding him. He has 40 criminal cases lodged against him in various states including Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh for murder, extortion and robbery.
17 people including nine cops were booked for roles in his escape.
Baddo is known for his lavish lifestyle including palatial homes, bespoke tuxedos, Swiss watches and luxury vehicles.
