All of you must be knowing the bikini killer Charles Sobhraj who is currently in jail in Nepal to be released soon. He is all set to marry a 20 year old girl who was his translator. Imagine a 64 year old man who has a 38 year old daughter wanting to marry a girl who is just 20!!! She looks like his grand daughter. She claims she is madly in love with him. What is happening to the kids nowadays!!

Love is said to be blind and the lovers are blind. I am not surprised by that because here in my home country there are forced marriages between girls as young as 13 or 15 to old men above 70 years or even 90. there are also small girls who alope to old men willingly. I dont know what the world has turned into but thats the way it is. What about those old women who marry young men even 18 year old? This is a policy of willing buyer willing seller

When the man is a known criminal who has been involved in a lot of murders and that too murdering females the matter is questionable.

Yes it does not look like this story will have a happy ending. But I sincerely hope that it does not have any tragic ending either.

Yes but you are not a murderer. This guy is known as a bikini killer because he has a record of getting friendly with girls and then murdering them. Most of his victims have been found in their bikinis. Thats the difference between you and him.

So then the issue here is with the criminal background of the man, not with the age diference. The way the headline was written it was implied that the age diference was the bigger problem.

That is just wrong that someone who is sixty four wants to marry a girl who is twenty and young enough to be his granddaughter,I do not know what she is thinking especially since he is in jail,love can definitely be blind along with dumb and it sounds like the girl has no sense,and it sounds like the guy should not be released from jail but instead should be in there for life.

This guy has a final hearing in court nest week and the media thinks he is marrying her just as a means of escape from the law.

This is absolutely ridiculous. Not just the age difference but the fact that this guy is a convicted killer. Who in their right mind would marry not just a killer that is 44 years older; but a man that they can never, ever have a normal relationship with?? This woman's family need to whisk her off somewhere far away and slap some sense into her! lol.

Oh the woman's mother is very much in favour of this marriage. So there is no one to slap any sense into her.

It is not so much the age difference but the reputation of the man that I was trying to stress on. This man is a criminal and is wanted by the police in many countries.

She is after his money and the notoriety. The second, she is also falling under the trap that she wants to reform him. That girl has the sense of a pea. The third is that he is holding something over her. The fourth is he being a sociopath obviously is putting himself out as God's answer to womankind(or should I mean the devil.) The fifth, and most dangerous is that is also in the third, that a wife cannot testify against her husband. I do not know that this is true, but I rather suspect that it is.

This girl is getting herself into big trouble and she is not realizing it. She is now just enjoying all the media attention she is getting. Hope she wakes up soon.

This sounds like a case of what they call blind love. But it happens and some people find attraction and fall in love with people that are younger or older. I would not immediately get married if I were either of them since they haven't spent alot of time together outside of his prison. They only know each other in conversation. How long has this guy been in jail? And I just don't know that I could fall in love with an older man that was found guilty of killing a person. But I guess you never know where love will find you.

I agree that sometimes one can fall in love with someone older. But that happens when you are meeting a person often and then start liking the person. This man is a convict who has been in jail for many years for the murder of two girls. And the only time this girl has met him was during her visits to the jail. So how could she know him so well that she has decided to marry him. If he was already let out of jail and then they were meeting and she had later to decide to marry him it would not have sounded so wierd. But he is still in jail and is also wanted for some other crimes by police in other countries.

Actually, Charles Sobharj's case is still in court. But a 20 years girl is mad in love with Sobharaj and want to marry I dont know whats going on...may be love is...

Yes his case is still in court and there are some more cases against him in some other countries. So this girl must be really blind or then because the media is following her so much she has started to fall in love with the limelight now.

This is obscene. What on earth can such an older man and this young girl have in common. Is she being forced against her will? Is he rich? Is he seen as a passport for the girl to a better life? A 20 year old has all her life ahead of her. She needs to experience that life with her own peers to gain the maturity required to make the right decisions for herself. How can they be regarded as a genuine couple when the age gap is so huge? She is at a different emotional stage of her life to his. They can never see eye to eye. He will be like a father rather than a husband. If that is what she desires emotionally, then perhaps they will be successful with their relationship. But, if she is 'madly in love', as she says, sees him as a potential husband and there is no coercion, I give it 6 months to a year for her to come down to earth with a massive thump! Very sad.

This girl is not being forced into this situation. She has very happily given interviews to the press and she says she is looking forward to getting married. Her mother is very happy about this marriage. This whole situation sounds very bizzare. Both of them together look like grandfather and granddaughter. She has not yet got a chance to move around in society with him because she met him when he was in the jail and he is still there waiting to be released.

Well, all along in the history of mankind, Love creates surprises and shocks. When it comes to destiny and fate, we can't stop anyone from falling in love with anybody. Perhaps this 20 year old girl had not grown to be mature in thinking such that she could make a realistic decision. There could also be that Charles Sobhraj actually could provide for her in terms of happiness and needs.

Yes all would hope that he provides her in terms of happiness and needs and she does not end up like the few girls that he has murdered in the past.

If there are no legal impediments to his marrying this girl then I see no reason why he should not marry this girl. It's none of my business and he certainly won't be asking permission from the likes of me. It is not like he is getting rewarded or anything, marrying a 20-yr-old girl. Cheers!!

This guy is wanted by the police in many countries. He is just now in jail for the murder of two girls. He is wanted for murder in some other places also. So this girl may be risking her life by taking this step.

If his daughter had to get married as soon as she came of age she would probably have a daughte this big now.

I agree that old is gold but this is not always the case. This old is rotten crap. He has murdered a lot of girls and he is in jail for the same. And when he comes out of this jail he will most probably be caught by the police of some other countries where there are some murder and other crime cases pending against him.

This poor girl is throwing away her life. Maybe she thinks this man will give her security and a financial future - who knows. It would be like being married to a grandfather - no fun at all. And he's a murderer, too? Whoa - pity this girl's family can't talk some sense into her. It doesn't sound as if it could possibly be a very healthy relationship, no matter what she says!

This girls mother is very happy with the relationship. Probably she is enjoying the fact that her daugher is now on television but does not realize it is for the wrong reasons.

yeah it is happening in my own country, that is NEPAL. Last time in our local media she became public in the media. She was then interviewed, she was so much excited with that relation. I don't know why, what kind of relation it is, but it is obviously strange. Not only her but also her mother accepts this relationship after interacting with her fiancee. The girl's name is NIHITA BISHWAS who has just finished her high school. College girls marries old and rich man. But charles shovraj? a criminal? hmm love is not only blind, but strange, awful, and nausea too.

If this guy was not a criminal there was no big issue about this. But since everyone knows about his criminal past and knows how he has just taken advantage of all the people whom he has met in his life I think she is taking a very wrong decision.
