A real-life Simmba! It’s a moniker Cyberabad commissioner of pol­­ice V.C. Sajjanar appears to have earned from twitterati after the Telangana police recently gunned down four men acc­­used of raping and killing a woman veterinary doctor.

Minutes after news broke of the ‘enc­ounter’, the 1996-batch IPS officer was hailed by many on social media platfo­rms as a ‘supercop’ for having executed a Simmba-like operation against the alle­ged rapist-killers within days of the ghastly crime. Some went so far as to suggest that the police might have watched the movie before venturing out.
