Tamil Nadu Director General of Police A Ravindranath on Thursday rejected the reported 'surrender offer' by sandalwood smuggler Veerappan.

"There is no need to accept the surrender offer of a forest brigand," he said.

"No negotiations with a forest brigand. We will nab him," Ravindranath asserted, but refused to specify a time frame.

He added that the police did not require the mediation of Tamil National Movement leader P. Nedumaran to resolve the Veerappan issue.

Nedumaran had on Thursday demanded that the Special Task Force suspend operations against Veerappan and accept his surrender offer. He had also offered to mediate with the fugitive smuggler.

He had said that he was willing to go to the forest and negotiate with Veerappan if both governments agree, . He was also quite confident of convincing Veerappan to surrender.

"Both governments should take a positive decision first. I request both governments and also the Indian Government to consider my proposal seriously. They should first come forward and give general amnesty to him. Then, I can try to convince Veerappan to surrender," he said. (PTI)
