Where is Prabha Vijayalakshmi Now? Veerappans Daughters Explained

Where is Prabha Vijayalakshmi Now? We discuss the 2023 Netflix true crime documentary series The Hunt for Veerappan and Veerappan’s Daughters.

The Netflix documentary series The Hunt for Veerappan is a detailed exploration of the smuggler and elephant poacher Veerappan that would thwart the authorities and lead to him achieving an almost legendary status in India.

His story has been the subject of many films and documentaries in the past, but this four-part series does seem to be a definitive and detailed exploration of the story, covering many aspects of the long and complex case.

Veerappan would marry and have daughters with his wife Muthulakshmi, and you will be able to read an accompanying article about this remarkable lady right here on Ready Steady Cut.

This article will focus on the couple’s daughters, though, as we answer the question, where is Prabha Vijayalakshmi now? The daughter of Veerappan.

Who is Veerappan’s daughter, Prabha Vijayalakshmi, and where is she now?

There is not a lot of information about Prabha, and you can imagine that being the daughter of such a prominent and divisive character would maybe lead you to avoid the limelight and public eye.

Prabha was eleven years old when her father eventually met his final fate, and due to the circumstances that surrounded her father, she would never really know the man.

This lack of connection with her father may have spared her from becoming the subject of constant attention from the authorities though, allowing her time to study and lead a relatively normal life.

What does Vidyha and Prabha Vijayalakshmi do for a living?

It seems that Prabha’s sister Vidyha studied law and graduated in the subject too. After this, she would follow community-based action incentives, probably influenced by her mother’s work, and became the vice president of the BJP’s Tamil Nadu Youth Wing.

As well as this, she would go on to run a school in the area of Krishnagiri. With the timing of the release of the documentary, it is also worth noting that the ambitious Vidhya would land a role in a film.

The producer and director of the film is KNR Raja, and the film is an exploration of the effects of alcoholism and its impact on families. The film titled Maaveeran Pillai is made in Tamil but will also be dubbed in Kannada.

Vidhya is reported to be married to a Christian Dalit man, despite her mother not agreeing to the marriage as she objected to the inter-caste relationship.

However, there are no reliable sources that can provide information on Prabha.

Was there a third daughter of Veerappan who was killed?

It may be worth noting that there are conflicting reports about a third daughter who did not survive, and the chilling story states that one of Veerappan’s daughters would be killed to stop the cries of the child, alerting officers of the gang’s whereabouts.

An article in The News Minute provides details of a horrific moment when the decision was made to kill the child to stop the gang’s hideout being found by armed police.

Whether or not this is true depends on what source you look at. The article cites the book Veerappan: Chasing the Brigand by K Vijay Kumar. It is a horrific part of the story that some believe to be true.
