Tooooooooo much of true crime is centered around America - New York murder this and Chicago Killer that. What about the Delhi Dons and Karachi killers and Bangladeshi Burglars?! If you are tired of the the same-old American murderer, British killer, Australian kidnapper, Canadian stalker… NO MORE! The Desi Crime Podcast brings DESI crimes. From India, Pakistan, Nepal and other brown communities, we’ll bring you cases that can only be described as Desi. Crimes that take place in the Indian subcontinent aren’t remotely similar to Western crimes— desi crimes are gory, complicated, corrupt and hardly documented. After thorough research on the most sinister cases, we’ll take you on a bumpy, jaw dropping ride around South Asia.

Crime is a popular genre in India. CID was watched by boomers, John Grisham was read by millennials, and now, The Desi Crime Podcast is there for Gen Z.

30. Final Verdict : Jayaraj and Bennix - India
Almost two years ago, in June of 2020, as the world was protesting the unlawful death of George Floyd caused by a cop who stepped on his neck for over 9 minutes, India was fighting its own case of police brutality. We brought that case to you two years ago and since then, new, harrowing developments in the case have led us to bring to you an update episode. This episode goes to the countless people who are hurt or lose their life at the hands of those meant to protect them. This episode goes to cases that never got a protest, people that were turned into mere statistics of violence at the hands of the police. This episode goes to Jayaraj and Bennicks and their family that still mourns their loss today. This is their story.
