Supreme Court confirms death to Nithari serial killer Koli

The Supreme Court today upheld the death sentence to Nithari serial killer Surinder Koli for murdering 14-year-old Rimpa Haldar, one of his first victims in the serial rape-cum-killing episode six years ago, saying the case was "horrifying" and "barbaric".
A Bench of Justices Markandey Katju and Gyan Sudha Misra confirmed the death sentence to 39-year-old Koli, who has also been awarded capital punishment by the trial court in three other cases of rape and killings of young women and children in Nithari village near Noida on the outskirts of the national capital.
A total of 16 cases were registered against Koli. His businessmen employer Moninder Singh Pandher was sentenced to death in the Rimpa Haldar case but was acquitted by the Allahabad High Court. 54-year-old Pandher is facing trial in other cases.
"In our opinion this case falls in the rarest of rare category and no mercy can be shown to him," the Bench said, while confirming Koli's death sentence, which earlier had been endorsed by the Allahabad High Court.
