After a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Court in Uttar Pradesh on Monday awarded the death sentence to accused Moninder Singh Pandher and Surinder Koli in the 20-year-old Pinki Sarkar murder case, the mother of victim said that as long as the punishment is not implemented she will not rest.
"We will fight for our rights. The court has given order, implementing it will take another 10-11 years. As long as that doesn't happen, I won't be at rest," Pinki Sarkar's mother told the media here.
Meanwhile, the victim's advocate, Khalid Khan, said, "The court agreed that this was inhuman and the rarest of rare case. The CBI hadn't produced any evidence against Pandher, and he was punished following victim's statement. Under Section 302, they had been given the death sentence. The penalty has also been imposed on them. Surinder Kohli and Pandher both were found guilty."
On Saturday, the bench found prime accused Moninder Singh Pandher and his helper Surinder Koli guilty.
The case pertains to the horrific Nithari case where the police found skulls and bones of 16 people near Pandher's house in a Noida village.
The CBI registered a case under Sections 302, 376, 364, 201 and 120 (B) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on December 29, 2006.
Both Pandher and his domestic help Surinder Koli have confessed to charges of raping, killing and cannibalism.
Koli has been already convicted of the five murders and was sentenced to death.
While earlier he was given death sentence which was later changed to a life sentence by the Supreme Court on September 7, 2014.
