Manohar Arjun Surve (8 August 1944 – 11 January 1982), popularly known as Manya Surve, was one of the dons who made an impact in the Mumbai underworld. Being a Hindu, he was denied acceptance in the underworld. Enraged, he decided to form his ow...n gang. In just 2 years, his gang rose to such prominence that Pathans, who ruled the underworld for over 2 decades, sought his help to eliminate the leader of their arch rival gang, the Konkani speaking Kaskar group. It was headed by Dawood Ibrahim's elder brother, Sabir. Manya was known for his dare devilry and strategic planning. For Manya, it was a clear shot to success. The top gang of the city had come asking him for help and in doing so he would eliminate the other, and therefore become, as he said, "Bambai ka naya baap, Manya Surve." Thus was born the legend of Manya Surve, the first desperado in the Bombay gangland. The first educated Hindu gangster, who hailed from an area called Agar Bazaar in the suburbs of Dadar. Manohar Surve, a young man, fresh out of Kirti College got implicated in a murder that he did not commit and was sentenced to life in Yerwada Jail.
