Streaming service Netflix on Tuesday announced that its latest true crime docu-series, ‘Indian Predator: The Butcher of Delhi’, will drop on its platform on July 20.
The show will be directed by Ayesha Sood and produced by VICE India. It is based on true events from the national capital and follows the Delhi Police's investigation into a case of a serial killer who murdered people and scattered their body parts around the city.
The docu-series explains the sequence of events that led up to the arrest of this brutal murderer, Netflix said in a press release.
"The non-fiction space in India is constantly evolving and I am so happy to be a part of this to create a riveting story,” said Sood in a statement.
"As a filmmaker, I am keen to learn something from every project that I develop, and understanding this story and the investigation that it ensued, led me to discovering a lot about human psychology and the justice system as well! I look forward to presenting through this docu-series on Netflix, a case that should have rocked the country but was missed,” she added.
Samira Kanwar, VP Content for VICE APAC, said India has the potential for a "flourishing non-fiction content scene" which is finally picking up.
"We are thrilled to join hands with Netflix, a home to some of the best documentaries from India and around the world, to present the story of some of India's most ruthless serial killers. We are grateful to Netflix for providing us a platform to tell these stories and being such a supportive creative home,” she added.
