He was released and put on a plane from Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu to Paris through Doha on Friday. While on the flight to Doha, He maintained his innocence to an AFP reporter.
The notorious criminal agreed to have been incorrectly labeled as a serial killer. He arrived in Paris on Saturday morning, according to a source. When he landed in Paris, Sobhraj was taken by the border police for additional identity checks, according to an airport source.
According to another airport source, he was deemed “not wanted” by authorities and could leave the airport post the completion of all the checks. One of the Netflix documentaries, “The Serpent”, documents his life and killing spree. He was a very wise and cunning serial killer who often had the cops support him in all that he did.
The 78-year-old would pose as a gem trader and make friends with his victims to gain their support and faith. Once he knew that his “new friends” trusted him, he would take advantage of their gratitude and drug them, after which he would rob them and more often than not, leave them for dead. He told AFP that he had a lot to do and had to sue a lot of people.
Sobhraj had been caught and sent to a high-security prison in Nepal almost 20 years ago, in 2003. He was arrested because he allegedly murdered American backpacker Connie Jo Bronzich back in 1975. Sobhraj said that he was going to file a legal complaint against Nepal because he claimed that he was framed and that he was falsely accused.
