Shankar Kistaiyya

A telugu servant working for Badge. Badge used him as a domestic servant and a shop assistant, a labourer and an errand man. He accompanied Badge as his servant and was utilised by the entire group. Since he was familiar with country made pistols he was designated as the backup shooter with Badge in the failed attempt on the 20th. He followed Badge out of Birla Bhavan and returned with him to Pune from where he was picked up. Shankar was sentenced to life imprisonment by the trial court but was acquitted by the high court.

-Tushar A. Gandhi.
