The World

April 07, 1986

India's notorious "bikini killer" was recaptured, three weeks after he escaped from a New Dehli prison by drugging his guards with dope-laced sweets. Charles Sobhraj, 41, was arrested near Goa, a popular tourist resort, with David Hall, a Briton who allegedly masterminded the breakout in which six other inmates escaped, the Press Trust of India reported. Sobhraj, whose exploits were chronicled in two best-selling books, is wanted in at least eight other countries on two continents. Several of his victims were found floating in the Gulf of Thailand, clad in bikinis.
