SC refuses to intervene; says probe on
Legal Correspondent

New Delhi, January 3
The Supreme Court today refused to intervene in the sexual abuse and serial killings of children in Noida at this stage when the police was at primary stage of investigation and various human right bodies had taken cognizance of the issue.

Intervention of the Supreme Court was sought by advocate Ravi Prakash Gupta, who made a special mention of the matter before a Bench of Chief Justice Y K Sabharwal and Mr Justice C K Thakker soon after it assembled for the day’s hearing.

The court said when the police was yet to complete the investigation and Nation Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and National Commission for Women (NCW) had taken cognizance of the matter and sought reports from the UP Government, there was no point for the apex court to intervene.

Meanwhile, the Centre and UP Government have set up separate committees to look into the matter to ensure speedy and honest investigation into the serial killings of a large number of children and some adult women by the two accused, Moninder Singh Pandher and his servant Surendera Koli.

The NHRC and the NCW, which came down heavily on the UP Police for not taking timely action to prevent the ghastly incident despite various complaints about the missing of children from nearby Nithari village, had sought reports from the state government about the action taken so far.
