Ram Niranjan is an Indian serial killer, who is known for his cannibal activities. In September 2022, a Netflix documentary Indian Predator: The Diary of a Serial Killer was released based on the brutal murders convicted by him.In childhood, his family members used to compare him with other children over intelligence. He used to get deeply affected by such comparisons.As he grew older, he developed a short-tempered nature. He once killed a person for not giving him a lift in his car.In 2001, the chief reporter of Aaj newspaper Dhirendra Singh went missing in Allahabad. His family members searched for him for a day and then filed his missing report at a local police station. Soon, the news of Dhirendra Singh spread like a fire in the town. During the investigation, the local police found out that 20 other missing cases were reported in the same town, but they could not find any clue which could relate to all the missing cases.The local police then started tracking call records of Dhirendra, and in the call details, they found out that the last no. he had called was a landline number of a woman named Phoolan Devi, a gram panchayat member. When she was investigated by the local police, she denied calling Dhirendra, and then her husband, Ram Niranjan said that Dhirendra was his friend, and he had some work with him so he called him. Again, the police had no lead in the case, and they decided to investigate the case from another angle. They then started investigating the other missing complaints which were recorded in the past few months. Some of the missing people were Kaali Charan Srivastav (security guard), Ashok (driver), Santosh (cleaner), and Mueen (an expert in hypnotism).Even after studying all these cases, the police could not find any clue, but one thing they noticed was that the people who were missing were known for their intelligence in that area. During the investigation, one thing that struck the local police was the last call made and received by Dhirendra Singh. After rechecking the call details, one thing that grabbed their attention was the time of the last call which was 12:15 am. The local police found it very unusual because, in the village where Dhirendra was living, the people used to sleep up to 9 pm-10 pm.The local police then decided to reinvestigate Phoolan Devi and Ram Niranjan as he was the last person who called Dhirendra. A team of the local police was sent to get the family details of Niranjan and his wife from the villagers. They found out that the name of his wife and children were not real and were changed by Ram Niranjan.The local police then interrogated his wife and children, but they came out clean, and then Ram Niranjan was investigated. Initially, he tried to confuse the local police, but then he said, I need to eat some daal before saying something. I will not eat a bowl of daal but a pressure cooker full of daal. I will tell you something, but do not arrest me..Niranjan then asked the local police to follow him to a room on his farm in Pipri, Sonbhadra district, Uttar Pradesh. After reaching in front of the room, he said, This room and farm are of Raja Kolandar who is the most intelligent person and it is very difficult for anyone to find him. He organises his adaalat here and punishes people..Ram then brought a sack and pulled a severed head. The police were shocked to see it, Niranjan then pulled out one more severed head and said that the first one was of Srivastav Ji (Kalicharan Srivastav) and the other was of Mueen Bhai. He then pointed toward a tree where many severed heads were painted and tied to a tree. He then said Raja Kolandar was a cruel king and punished people that way. The police then asked him about the journalist Dhirendra. Niranjan said that Raja had cut his body into several pieces and disposed them. The police found the body parts and confirmed that the journalist was murdered. In further interrogation, Niranjan revealed how he conducted Dhirendras murder. He said, On 14 December 2000, I called Dhirendra to my farm to give him some important information, while he was sitting near a bonfire, my brother-in-law Vaksharaj, fired on him with a desi pistol and we beheaded him and disposed of other parts of his body in Rewa, Madhya Pradesh. I had a doubt that Dhirendra knew everything about me and would expose me, so I killed him. We kept his Tata Sumo..
