Death penalty for Pandher, Koli in Pinki Sarkar case

Death penalty for Pandher, Koli in Pinki Sarkar case”

Businessman Moninder Singh Pandher and domestic help Surinder Koli, convicted in the 2006 Nithari serial rape and murder cases, were produced in special CBI court in Ghaziabad amid heavy police security on Monday. The Nithari horror, in which victims were raped, killed and the corpses cannibalised, sent shockwaves and stirred the collective conscience of the country.

Public Prosecutor J.P. Sharma said the court held Pandher and Koli guilty under Sections 302 (punishment for murder), 376 (punishment for rape), 364 (kidnapping or murder in order to murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC.

The case, the eighth of the several lodged in the serial rape-murders, was registered by the CBI on December 29, 2006. Later, the accused threw her head and garments behind the house. Koli has already been sentenced to death in seven of the 16 cases.

This is the second time that Pandher has been awarded death sentence. The rest eight cases are at different stages of trial.

Most of Pandher and Koli´s alleged victims were children and women from nearby slums who disappeared without trace between 2005 and 2006.

However, after taking stock of arguments from both sides the court awarded death sentence to both the accused persons. Koli has been sentenced to death for six other murders related to the house, and faces similar charges in nine more instances.

Special judge Pawan Kumar Tiwari, who had convicted the duo on Saturday, handed down the sentence after which Pandher, who was out on bail, was taken into judicial custody. The court said that when Pandher "would bring call girls", Koli would "cook food for them" while Pandher "would drink with these girls". He had been denied justice since in earlier cases he was acquitted by the Allahabad High Court.

Her clothes, which were recovered from Koli, were identified by the parents.
