He is known for targeting young tourists, especially hippies, in various Asian countries and luring them with his charm and charisma. He would then drug them, rob them, and often kill them by strangling or drowning. He also used fake passports and identities to evade the authorities and travel across borders.
One of his most infamous crimes was the murder of Teresa Knowlton, an American backpacker who was found dead in a bikini on a beach in Thailand in 1975. Sobhraj and his accomplice Ajay Chowdhury had drugged her and drowned her in a tidal pool. They then left her body on the beach to make it look like an accidental drowning. This crime earned Sobhraj the nickname of "the bikini killer".
Another notorious crime was the murder of Jean-Luc Solomon, a Frenchman who was travelling with his wife Dominique in Nepal in 1975. Sobhraj and Chowdhury had befriended them and invited them to their hotel room. There, they poisoned them with pills and tried to set fire to their bodies. However, Dominique survived and was able to identify Sobhraj as the culprit. This was the first time that Sobhraj was linked to a murder by the police.The film also shows how Charles Sobhraj was eventually arrested and brought to justice by the persistent efforts of Amod Kanth and other police officers. Sobhraj was first arrested in India in 1976 for the poisoning and killing of a French tourist, Jean-Luc Solomon[^2^]. He spent 20 years in the Tihar Prisons, in New Delhi, where he lived in the prisonâs âluxury wing,â bribing guards with gemstones and money so that he could live apart from the other prisoners[^1^].
After his release in 1997, he returned to France and enjoyed his celebrity status. He gave interviews to the media and even planned to make a movie about his life. However, he made a fatal mistake when he went to Nepal in 2003, where he was recognized by a journalist and arrested for the 1975 murder of Connie Jo Bronzich, an American woman[^1^]. The following year, he was convicted and given a 20-year sentence â then considered for life â that was set to expire in October 2023[^1^].
In 2014, he was also found guilty of killing Bronzichâs Canadian friend, Laurent Carriere, and given another 20-year sentence[^2^]. He appealed against his convictions and claimed that he was innocent. He also suffered from various health problems, including heart disease and kidney failure. He underwent several surgeries and was frequently hospitalized. On 21 December 2022, the Supreme Court of Nepal ordered his release from prison because of his old age[^1^]. On 23 December, he was deported to France[^2^]. 061ffe29dd
