Also known as Sindhi Dalwai, Raman Raghav committed several murders in the outskirts of Mumbai in the mid-1960s. Most of his victims were usually pavement and hutment dwellers, who were bludgeoned to death with a blunt object of some sort. After his arrest, he was initially reluctant to divulge any information regarding the killings but later confessed to have committed 41 murders and even gave a detailed account of his modus operandi. He was awarded the death sentence but after being tested by a team of psychiatrists, who found him to be suffering from schizophrenia, Raghav's sentence was reduced to life imprisonment. He died at Sassoon Hospital in 1995. Pic/YouTube
