The World

March 17, 1986

A notorious Indian convict who is wanted in Thailand on murder charges escaped from a New Delhi prison after drugging guards with dope-laced sweets, officials there said. It was the second jailbreak by Charles Sobhraj, 41, a martial arts expert who has been dubbed the "bikini killer" because the bodies of several of his alleged 1976 victims were found floating in the Gulf of Thailand, clad in bikinis. Sobhraj and six others fled from a rear gate of the prison in an automobile.
