It’s Real pic of Manya Surve , taken from the Book , ‘ Dongri To Dubai ‘ on which the Movie ‘Shootout At Wadala’ is based.

Manohar Surve aka Manya Surve, was an infamous Indian urban dacoit and gangster in the Mumbai underworld. His death in 1982 during an encounter with the Maharashtra police became known as the city’s first recorded encounter killing.

On 11 January 1982, Mumbai police received a tip off from Varadarajan Mudaliar that Manya surve would be arriving at a beauty parlour near the Ambedkar College junction in Wadala. At around 1.30 pm, 18 Crime Branch officers split into three crack teams and waited for him to arrive. After twenty minutes, surve was spotted coming out a taxi to pick up his girlfriend, a widow with two children.

After noticing the squad close in and take positions, Surve took out his Webley and Scott revolver. However, before he could squeeze the trigger, surve was mortally wounded by two police officers Raja Tambat and Isaque Bagwan, who fired five bullets into his chest and shoulder.

surve was dragged from the scene and put on an ambulance. While on the way to KEM Hospital, he kept screaming that the police had not given him a fair chance to defend himself. He succumbed to his injuries a few minutes later.
