History of Usha with Charles

After fleeing from police prison in Delhi in 1973, her criminal father, Charles Sobhraj, retreated to Afghanistan with Usha and her mother, Chantal Compagnon. Charles and Usha’s mother were captured on the Afghanistan-Iran border and imprisoned in Kabul, while Usha was deported to France to live with her maternal grandparents by French embassy officials.

He eluded Afghan police imprisonment by drugging a guard and then flew to Paris, where he drugged his mother-in-law before grabbing Usha. Charles’ nefarious acts landed him in jail once more soon after abducting Usha, and Usha was brought back to her maternal grandparents.

Usha’s mother, Chantal, was released from a Kabul prison and took full custody of her daughter, relocating to the United States to keep her out of her father’s grasp permanently. Usha is thought to have grown up in the United States, but all attempts to contact her over the years have failed. Furthermore, there isn’t a single public photograph of her or her mother, Chantal Compagnon.
