Today we are going to tell about one such dangerous criminal, who was said to be the richest in the world. The name of this criminal was Pablo Escobar. Escobar was called the 'King of Cocaine'. He claimed that all Colombian leaders lived in his pocket, that is, he bought them with his own money.

An anecdote of Pablo Escobar is very famous. It is said that in the year 1986, he tried to enter Colombia politics. For this, he offered to repay the country's national debt of 10 billion dollars or about 750 billion rupees. Apart from this, another story of his is that once he was traveling somewhere. On the way, he got cold, then he burned only two million dollars of cash for the summer.
Pablo Escobar is considered the richest and most successful criminal in world history, in addition to the cocaine's most manipulative trader ever. Even the US government was upset with him because he had spread his cocaine business across America.
Pablo died of a bullet on December 2, 1993, but there are many controversies about this. Many believe that Pablo was killed by a Columbia police shot, while some believe he committed suicide. Many books have been written on Pablo and many films have also been made.
