Allahabad HC reserves judgement on criminal appeal of Pandher, Koli
Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court today
reserved its judgement on the criminal appeals of Moninder
Singh Pandher and Surendra Koli challenging the death sentence
awarded to them by a lower court in the infamous Nithari case.
The judgement was reserved by a Division Bench comprising
Justice Imtiyaz Murtaza and Justice Kashi Nath Pandey.
Pandher, a resident of Noida, and his domestic help Koli
were awarded capital punishment by a Special CBI court in
Ghaziabad on February 13 this year for having raped and
murdered a 14-year-girl at their house.
Several other girls, who went missing from the nearby
Nithari village, were believed to have been raped and murdered
at Pandher`s house where recovery of a large number of human
skeletons in December, 2006, had evoked a huge public outcry
following which CBI took up the inquiry into the matter.
