Nihita Biswas‘ days in the Indian TV reality show, Bigg Boss season 5 are over.
On the Episode 7 of the Bigg Boss 5 Nihita Biswas was voted-out by the public. On the Eviction Day, Pooja Mishra got another chance to remain in the show. You can watch the full episode in the video below:
Shakuntala Thapa, mother of Nihita, the wife of convicted killer Charles Shobhraj, told that she was shocked by the sex question her daughter faced in her appearance in Bigg Boss 5 in Indian TV channel Colors.
Shakuntala said, “People don’t ask such questions, especially to people they have known only for 15 minutes. Nihita is young and led a sheltered life. We encouraged her to join the show thinking she would make friends with people from different cultures and broaden her horizon.”
Lets analyze what happened in the show:
Bikini Killer Charles Shobhraj‘s 22-year-old wife Nihita Biswas is told to be featured in a reality TV show, Bigg Boss 5. From the time Nihita announced her love for the convicted killer, she was expected to cash in the popularity she got from linking herself to the controversial character.
An Indian Newspaper, Times of India, has told that Nihita has already confirmed her presence in the show. Bigg Boss show, known for presenting controversial content, goes on air in October. Nihita is expected to arrive in India by the end of September for the preparation of the show.
The Supreme Court of Nepal has found the Bikini Killer, Charles Shobraj’s wife, Nihita Biswas, and mother-in-law, Sakuntala Thapa, guilty on the charges laid by two lawyers Shanta Sedhain and Rajan Adhikari back in August 1, 2010.
Sakuntala Thapa, a lawyer and mother of Nihita Biswas, and Nihita in their after-verdict reaction had accused the lawyers to be corrupt and they were arrested in response to the charges. They were however released after 24 hours.

She also asked for mercy in the court. The issue however is not finalized yet. The proceeding will resume on Friday, August 6.

The Supreme Court (SC) on Friday upheld Patan Appellate Court’s decision to convict French national Charles Gurumukh Sobhraj on the charge of murders. Sobhraj has also been convicted for possessing fake passport.
Nihita Biswas, the wife of the ‘Bikini Killer’, Charles Sobhraj, has again tried to get a wide media coverage by accusing the Supreme Court judges for corruption on the final decision to convict Sobhraj for life. Sobhraj’s lawyer and mother-in-law, Shakuntala Thapa, argued that her client was denied justice and treated unfairly.
The 66-yr old Frenchman was sent to jail after being arrested in 2003 in the charge of murdering two foreign nationals in 1975. The Kathmandu District Court convicted him of murder in 2004 when he was found guilty of killing a US national, Connie Jo Bronzich and a Canadian Armond Carriere in 1975.
When news about marriage of Charles Sobhraj with a 20-year-old Nepali fiancÃ©e, Nihita Biswas was released I wrote “loving and marrying a killer with approval of a lawyer mother looks a bit fishy!”
Avenues TV aired an interview of Nihita in which she claimed that Sobhraj was innocent and her love was for life. I wasn’t alone on suspecting their affair. Film director Narayan Puri was watching the interview and decided to cash on the story.
â€œI watched the program with the girl saying confidently she knew about his past but yet was ready to marry him and I was very impressed,â€ Puri said. â€œI realized that it’s not only people with a positive image who have fans. It can happen to even a prisoner behind bars. I also realized what an intelligent man Sobhraj was and how his taking to crime was a loss for society.â€
Murder convict Charles Sobhraj on Wednesday tied the knot with his 20-year-old Nepali fiancÃ©e, Nihita Biswas, on the day of Bada Dashain, greatest festival in Nepal. Nihita, 44 years younger than Charles, married in the jail where he is kept, after being sentenced to life imprisonment in July 2004.
There was no priest though the brideâ€™s brother and mother Shakuntala Thapa turned up to show their support. Thapa, a leading lawyer, is also fighting Sobhrajâ€™s case in Supreme Court, challenging a lower court decision that declared him guilty of the murder of an American backpacker, Connie Jo Bronzich, in 1975.

Sobhraj has in the past admitting to killing several Western tourists, and is serving a life sentence for killing a Canadian tourist in Katmandu in 1975.
Agreed, love is blind and love doesnâ€™t see the barrier of age, sex or anything. But loving and marrying a killer with approval of a lawyer mother looks a bit fishy! Many questions remain unanswered like – how could a girl fall in love with a man so famous for killing women? Or how could they fall for each other in mere few visits of 20 minutes each?
It it Charles making some plans and Nihita being used? Or is it like Charles want to settle down and Nihita want to enjoy the sudden limelight?
