Pandher, Koli guilty of rape, murder

Ghaziabad, December 7

A CBI court here on Thursday held businessman Maninder Singh Pandher and his aide Surendra Koli guilty in the rape and murder of housemaid Anjali in 2006.

Special Central Bureau of Investigation Judge PK Tiwari said since both were involved in the crime they deserved to be punished.  

The court will pronounce the quantum of punishment in the ninth case of what has come to be known as the Nithari killings on Friday, prosecution lawyer JP Sharma said.

It is the third case in which Pandher has been found guilty. He was sentenced to death in two cases earlier. Sharma said Koli had been found guilty in eight cases decided earlier as well and given the death sentence.

Chargesheets were filed against the two accused in 16 of the 19 cases, out of which nine cases have been decided till date. The family of Anjali, 25, had filed a missing person complaint after she failed to return home on October 12, 2006. 

After Koli’s arrest on December 29, 2006, the police recovered some human skulls and bones from the rear end of Pandher’s house in Noida. — IANS
