Shaitaan (Colors TV): Story Of A Queer Serial Killer Who Killed Over 20 Girls (Episode 14 On 2nd February 2013)

Mohan Kumar, also known as "Cyanide Mohan," is believed to have killed 20 women in India between 2003 and 2009 by luring them to a hotel room, having sex with them, and giving them a cyanide pill disguised as birth control. Kumar, a former schoolteacher, was sentenced to death in 2013 for three of the murders but had escaped from India and was living in Australia. He was recently arrested in Bali, Indonesia after police received a red notice from Interpol and was tipped off by Australian police. Kumar is now being questioned by Indonesian police and could be deported or extradited to India.

Kumar preyed on vulnerable women, often poor and desperate to marry, by promising to marry them without a dowry. He worked strategically, spending about two months grooming each victim while seeking out new ones. He was careful not to draw the attention of his victims' families or friends, so when young women went missing, he was never a suspect. Kumar was charged with attempted murder after pushing a young woman off a bridge but was not convicted.

Calls from one victim's phone led officers investigating her disappearance to Kumar's residence in a village near Mangalore, where they found the young woman's jewelry, several mobile phones, eight cyanide tablets, and a diary in which Kumar had kept a record of his murder attempts. Kumar was arrested in 2009 and put on trial two years later for 20 murders of young women over the course of five years. He was sentenced to death after being convicted of only three.

The case of Cyanide Mohan shocked India, and his MO of luring young women with promises of marriage and then killing them with cyanide drew attention to violence against women in the country. The case also highlighted the need for better protection and support for vulnerable women and proper investigation and prosecution of such cases to ensure justice for the victims and their families. Kumar's recent arrest in Bali has brought some closure to the families of his victims and serves as a reminder of the importance of international cooperation in bringing fugitives to justice.

Mohan Kumar was arrested by the police in a village near Mangaluru in October 2009. He was convicted in 15 cases of similar nature and received life sentences, as well as a death penalty in four murder trials. He is currently serving his sentence at Hindalga Central Prison in Belagavi.

In June 2020, Mohan, who is now 57 years old, was found guilty of murder in the 20th and final case against him. Prior to this, he had been sentenced to death in five cases and given life imprisonment in others, though two of the death penalties were later commuted to life imprisonment.

In this particular case, Mohan was accused of convincing a 25-year-old woman from Kasargod to go with him to Bengaluru, promising to marry her. He took her to a lodge where he r*ped and killed her the following day by giving her a cyanide-laced tablet that he claimed was a contraceptive pill. He used the same method in all 20 cases against him.

The judge sentenced Mohan to life imprisonment and a fine of Rs. 25,000 for murder under Section 302 of the IPC, ten years and Rs. 5,000 for abduction, ten years and Rs. 5,000 for administering poison, seven years and Rs. 5,000 for r*pe, five years and Rs. 5,000 for stealing jewelry, and also imposed imprisonment and fines for cheating and destroying evidence.
