Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Dacoit

Burma (Myanmar) (dark green) / ASEAN (dark grey)Image via Wikipedia
Dacoit: noun – Hindi = ḍakait, from ḍākā gang-robbery; a member of an Indian or Myanmar gang of armed robbers: verb -  to rob as a dacoit.

'Did you know Ajeet was a dacoit, when you sent him into the bank with his friends to withdraw some cash for you?'

'I did, but I never expected he'd dacoit the bank and pull a gun on the poor teller.'

Sometimes, I like to throw in an unusual word; just to keep you on your toes.
