How a Serial Killer Eluded Capture For Over Two Decades and Then Was Finally Captured in Nepal
Charles Sobhraj, a 78-year-old French citizen, has just arrived in France after completing a life sentence in Nepal. This notorious serial killer had been incarcerated in Nepal since 2003, due to his involvement in the deaths of several American and Canadian backpackers in the 1970s.
Sobhraj had arrived in Paris on Saturday, via Qatar, aboard a flight from Nepal. His French lawyer, Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, confirmed the news to The Associated Press.
Upon his arrival, it is expected that Sobhraj will face legal proceedings in Paris because of his previous criminal offenses.
Charles Sobhraj has had a tumultuous past. His life story and his various crimes have made him a highly-sought after figure in the media. As he arrives in Paris, it is important to remember the victims and their families and to take this as an opportunity to extend our sympathies and love to those who are still reeling from the loss of their loved ones. Sobhraj’s story illustrates just how important it is for us to remain vigilant when it comes to international crime, especially when it involves vulnerable people like travelers.
