KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court today issued an ordinance to the government whether Charles Sobhraj, a notorious killer should be entitled to reduction in his sentence as a senior citizen.

The ordinance requires the government to reach a decision in regards to the ‘bikini killer’ within three months.

The ordinance was issued by the joint bench of justices: Ishwor Khatiwada and Bam Kumar Shrestha. The court had acted on a writ petition filed by advocate Shakuntala Thapa.

She is the mother of Nihita Bishwas, Charles’ beloved. Advocate Thapa in her petition had made the demand citing the age factor of Charles who is now 75. Charles is in for life imprisonment at the Central Jail, at Sundhara in the capital city.
