India’s fugitive ‘Dr Death’, accused of dozens of murders, arrested

AN INDIAN traditional-medicine doctor jailed for life for murdering truck drivers and feeding their remains to crocodiles has been caught after jumping parole while on release for good behaviour, Indian police said.

Devendra Kumar Sharma, 62, was arrested by Delhi police in the capital late Tuesday. In January he failed to return from a week’s-long parole after serving 16 years behind bars.
