It was an interesting evening on Sunday at the Mumbai Cricket Association when the Mumbai Commissioner of Police Vivek Phansalkar launched the book of another police officer Dr. Amar Kumar Pandey, titled A Don’s Nemesis.

Dr Amar Kumar Pandey is former Director General of Police, Karnataka State, a decorated officer. A Don’s Nemesis details Dr. Pandey’s experiences while on a chase to and catch the infamous don Ravi Pujari, who was not traceable for 26 years. The book tells the story of the single-handed pursuit of don Ravi Pujari by the author across the globe, and finally extraditing him from Senegal.

A Don’s Nemesis was unveiled in the presence of dignitaries from the police, civil society, the press and the film industry, with the chief guest being CP Vivek Phansalkar. This is Dr. Pandey’s second book.

Not only was it a book launch, but also an announcement platform for a web series to be made on A Don’s nemesis. Producer Rakesh Dang and director Umesh Shukla announced a web series on the book and how preparations are on for the shoot, with the script being locked.
