According to India Today, the 32-year-old killer, had no friends even as a child and was frequently bullied by other children. He was mocked for his dark complexion by everyone. This, an interrogator believes, could have contributed in his evolving into a psychopath.

Police say there was a complex world that Udayan had created for himself, The Times of India reports, where he would spend lavishly and would not care for anyone but himself. It was this mentality that led him to create over 110 fake email and Facebook accounts. "He would note down the email IDs and passwords and then use them to comment on his own posts. He even posted likes from different accounts just to portray that he was successful and accepted in life," the report quoted a source as saying.

Udayan is currently under interrogation by Bankura police in Bankura town where he was brought on Monday night after he confessed to having murdered and entombed Akansha Sharma in Bhopal. Udayan said he was inspired by the drama series Crime Scene Investigation: New York and Hollywood film Devil’s Knot, according to The Indian Express.

Sources in the police said around 2,500 CDs of Hollywood movies and television series — mostly based on crime — were found in his house.

The police had sought 8-day remand for the serial killer.
