Akku Yadav was a serial rapist, killer, gangster, kidnapper, and also robber. He lived in the Kasturba Nagar slum. It is known that he had raped more than 40 women and also killed and tortured people. His terror was widely spread in the slums. People feared to raise their voices against him, few people who were threatened by him left the slums due to his fear.

The major reason for the fear of all the people was that he had good connections in the police department as well, as he used to bribe them. There was one lady named Asha Bhagat, who had the guts to face him. But she was also killed which broke all the hopes of the people in the slums. Akku killed his friend, Avinash Tiwari. The reason was that he used to talk to Asha even after Akku told him to not do so.

After he tried to threaten Usha Narayane, the people of the slums decided to end it, and together they raised their voices which scared Akku. He decided to go to prison, not because he was guilty of all his crimes, but because he wanted protection from the people of the slums. He was not charged with any of the crimes, the people of the slums had imposed on him which infuriated them. They decided not to leave him.
