Phoolan Devi was a bandit who later went on to become a politician. She was popularly known as the Bandit Queen and became the moll of a gang leader of a group of bandits at a young age.

Not only this, her gang later went on to shoot those who raped her and the Indian media called it an act of rebellion by an oppressed woman.
