PRESS TRUST OF INDIA BY SHIRISH B PRADHAN


Kathmandu, Jul 30 (PTI) Dealing a body blow to ‘bikini killer’ Charles Sobhraj’s freedom bid, Nepal’s Supreme Court today convicted the Indian-origin criminal in a sensational murder case of an American tourist and upheld the life term awarded to him by lower courts.

66-year-old Sobhraj, a French national whose father was an Indian and mother a Vietnamese, was also found guilty by the apex court of possessing a fake passport.

Rejecting the appeal of the international criminal in the 1975 murder case of US citizen Connie Jo Bronzich, a two-judge bench of the apex court comprising Ram Kumar Prasad Shaha and Gauri Dhakal upheld the verdicts of the Kathmandu district court and Patan appellate court in the matter.

“Although there is no direct evidence, based on circumstantial evidence, we don’t see any fault in the decision of the Kathmandu district court and the Patan appellate court.
