The Allahabad High Court on Monday stayed the hanging of Nithari serial killings convict Surinder Kohli till December 22.
Kohli was convicted for the murder of a girl, Rimpa Halder, who went missing in Noida in December 2006. After a police investigation, she was found to have been murdered by Kohli.
During the probe, the skeletal remains of many other children were recovered from a drain adjacent to businessman Moninder Singh Pandher’s house in Nithari, an area in Noida, where Kohli worked as domestic help.
Both Kohli and Pandher were sentenced to death, but later the Allahabad High Court acquitted Pandher and upheld Kohli’s death sentence.
