For all those who still don’t understand what this article is all about. let us brief you about the series and the person first. Recently via the Vice Production Studios and under the distributorship of Netflix, Ayesha Sood decided to bring a documentary series where the audience will be able to understand how the mindset of a serial killer works and how he turned into a serial killer. There have been previously various series that have covered such topics, but very few exist that have been made on Indian local serial killers who have left an imminent impact on the social standing and have been forgotten at the same time.

Now Chandrakant Jha isn’t a man whom the Delhi police have forgotten anyhow. With just 3-4 murders, he shook the entire police force and it wasn’t even like a normal murder, he used to mock the police force at every step and ask them to try to get him if they could. Surely a daring man and a man to be feared. However, his background isn’t of such great significance, nor was he connected to a big gang or something. He was a simple man whose motive for murdering was simply disliking a certain factor of the victims and his killing techniques were to create a great bond with his victims, gain their trust and slowly trap them. Then he used to click a picture of them, which is quite weird and the main reason of his, behind this act, is still unknown. After everything he used to kill the person and just like a butcher, he used to chop up the body into different parts and leave them in different parts of the city. Some victims who were able to run away and save themselves, are even scared to date even when they hear his name and although the man is in jail, nothing is enough to relieve the victims from his fear.

Indian Predator: The Butcher Of Delhi Story

The story for this documentary series is entirely what we have mentioned above. It’s just a documentary series that covers the acts of Chandrakant Jha, how he acted, what were the main motives behind his killing, and how he committed the crimes. We also get a vivid description of the police force perspective and the officers who were in charge of the case. The main changing point, in this case, was when the officer in charge of his first case which was in 1988 was able to identify the murder pattern, and soon the police tried to reach him. One of the best things about this show is how detailed it is but at the same time, it has been criticized by some critics stating the fact that the directors have provided only the facts that are available everywhere and didn’t cover any other perspective of the story other than the one that the government has provided the public with. One of the interesting facts about this series is that it has also got some interviews with the victims, who have somehow been able to save themselves from the gripping traps of Chandrakant.
