The thieves are a special class of gangsters who used to hang a passer-by-neck hammer or cloth. The thieves established the reign of terror in Bengal and northern India from 13th to 19th centuries. They used to worship the goddess of the Hindus. Their words were first known in 1356 in the history of Firoz Shah, written by historian Ziauddin Barani. In 1830, Governor General Lord Bentin instructed William Henry Sleiman, the administrator of India to abolish the intimidation. Henry Schleiman was able to eradicate the thieves due to the efforts of several years. According to some estimates, for nearly 100 years, between 1740 and 1840, more than 1 million people were deceived by deceit. The gangs usually traveled in the group of miscreants, pilgrims, pilgrims, and on the other side, along with other pilgrims. They could have mixed them with good use. Then they suddenly plucked the yellow color cloth around the neck of the travelers in a break. They sacrificed their property and sacrificed their dead bodies to Hindu goddess Kali. After the killing, the bodies were buried together by burying the bones together so that the process of decompression accelerates. In the history of Firoz Shah, written by Ziauddin Barani of 1356, it is known that in the regime of Sultan of 1290, some of the deceased were caught, although some said that their number was one thousand, and They were taken to New Delhi, but the sultan did not kill one of them, but rather to them in the boat He ordered to send Bhatia to the country so that he could never create chaos in Delhi sometime. Sir Aisam Eliot wrote in India’s history, Thagira normally used to kill those murders. He could have been allowed to kill a child if he was 18 years old. In 1812, the British government first came to know about the threats. At that time, 50 bodies were found lying in a mass grave while being slaughtered. Chagira called their goddess Bhabani in Bengal. They usually used to live in a house during the year, and in the autumn, they went on a group trip to kill people. The name of the deceased party was named as Jamadar. The main pilgrimage of the thieves was Kalighat in West Bengal and Bhavani Mandir of Bindhatal.

 

A yellow color for the assassination of the deceased used to have its handkerchief, which was only 30 igi The handkerchief folded and placed on two heads of two rupars on the two heads. When the people killed a man, at that time there were three intrigues to kill a person, one of them would have leaned over, the other handkerchief would have pounded the throat and killed another person. After the assassination, the bodies were buried in the ground. If anybody escaped, the forerunners of the deceased could kill them. They usually did not kill beggars, musicians, dancers, sweepers, oil dealers, carpenter, blacksmith, handicap, leprosy, gangs and women.

William-Henry-Sleeman

Initially, when a pilgrim was negligent, the British rulers considered it to be an isolated incident, but when the British started to disappear slowly, the governor general Lord Bentik learned to know that a religious extremist had a hand in it. In 1830, he instructed the Indian administrator William Henry Sleiman to eliminate the thieves. Henri recruited an espionage to eliminate the thieves so that their movements could be easily preoccupied. From 1830 to 1841 he was able to catch up to 3700. After the execution of around 500 deceased in the year 1940, the number of the deceased decreased.
