Sweetheart of international convict and ‘serial killer’ Charles Sobhraj, Nihiti Bishwas, surprised everybody when she announced that she was in love with Sobhraj. 65 year-old Sobraj and 21 year-old Nihita is an odd couple even without the the spicy criminal scene. That was why Nepali director Narayan Puri once told he wanted to make a movie out of their story in 2009.
The ‘love story’ made headline once again when the Supreme Court postponed Charle’s case. The journalists present there to cover the final verdict of the Court had nothing but Nihita Biswas to report about.
In 2008, Sobhraj and Nihita told that they got married on Dashain, the of biggest Hindu festival. But, as no priest or any court papers were involved the marriage proved to be a publicity hoax.
Although, the motivation of either Nihita or Sobhraj is unclear, it is everybody’s guess that they want to get a wider popularity by having the relationship.
For the journalists, the love story of a beautiful young girl and a ‘serial killer’ in itself is a great story to report about. That might be the only reason why photos of Nihita is being published with priority all over the world. Otherwise, it doesn’t need an Einstein to guess why a smart looking girl would love her lawyer mother’s murderer client. That too, with the full approval of the mother!
