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.
