Charles Shovraj’s lawyer Gopal Shibakoti said Charles will sue Nepal government for damage by unfairly putting him in jail all these years. He will also sue Netflix, some book publishers and documentary makers for projecting him the wrong way.

Shibakoti said Charles is thinking in terms of doing philanthropy. About his return, Shibakoti said he will first consult his family members—he had married a Nepali girl while in jail—  and friends before taking a decision.

The Supreme Court has ordered release of serial killer Sobhraj on Wednesday with instruction to the government to send him back to France, his own country, within 15 days.

The order was issued by a division bench of justices Sapana Pradhan Malla and Til Prasad Shrestha. The bench said, “If it is not necessary to imprison him for other cases, he needs to be released and arrangement made to send him back to him home within 15 days”.
