Charles Sobhraj

Nepal is set to release notorious serial killer Charles Sobhraj after he has served 19 years in prison. Sobhraj, who is of Indian and Vietnamese descent, was convicted of murdering two Western tourists in Nepal in the 1970s. He is believed to have killed up to 12 people in total, although he was only ever convicted of three murders. After his release, he will be deported back to his home country of France.

Sobhraj’s crimes gained him infamy in the 1970s, when he was dubbed “The Serpent” by the media. He would often target young Western tourists, luring them in with his charm and then drugging them before robbing them or killing them. In some cases, he even staged their deaths to look like accidents. His victims were found in various countries across Asia, including Nepal, India, Thailand, and Turkey.

Sobhraj was finally captured in 1976 in India, but he escaped from prison and remained on the run for several years. He was eventually recaptured in Nepal in 2003 and has been in prison there ever since.

Now that he is set to be released, there are concerns that Sobhraj may resume his killing spree.
