Resurrection of a murder case
Nepal's Supreme Court on Friday upheld the conviction and life imprisonment awarded to Charles Sobhraj in a 35-year-old murder case.
A division bench of Justices Ram Kumar Prasad Shah and Gauri Dhakal upheld the 20-year imprisonment handed over to Sobhraj.
In 2004, Sobhraj was convicted by the Kathmandu district court for the murder of an American tourist Connie Jo Bronzich in Nepal. He allegedly killed Connie in 1975 and then fled from Nepal.
Sobhraj's role is suspected in 12 murder cases across Asia.
