Gangster postage stamps cause angst in India

Pictures of underworld don Chhota Rajan and gangster Munna Bajrangi have been printed on postage stamps in Kanpur under the ‘My Stamp’ scheme which allows citizens to get personalized sheets of postage stamps from India Post. The postmaster has suspended a clerk for his negligence.

Chhota Rajan is boss of a major crime syndicate based in Mumbai. He is currently serving a life sentence at Tihar Jail in New Delhi. Gangster Munna Bajrangi was killed in Baghpat jail in Uttar Pradesh in 2018.
