Nithari - I hate to be right this time

I hate to be right in my predictions on this case as somewhere there was a hope that justice will be delivered. I must say that I was an idiot in hoping this. Let us see what has happened since last I wrote on this.

On 12 February 2009, both the accused Moninder Singh Pandher and his domestic help Surender Koli were found guilty of the 8 February 2005 murder of Rimpa Haldar, 14, by a special sessions court in Gaziabad. This verdict left the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) red faced, as the CBI had earlier given a clean chit to Moninder Singh Pandher in all its chargesheets. Both the accused Moninder Singh Pandher and his domestic help Surender Koli were given death sentence on 13 February 2009, as the case was classified as "rarest of rare". On 4 May 2010, Koli was found guilty of the 25 October 2006 murder of Arti Prasad, 7, and given a second death sentence eight days later. On 27 September 2010, Koli was found guilty of the 10 April 2006 murder of Rachna Lal, 9, and given a third death sentence the following day. On 22 December 2010, Koli was found guilty of the June 2006 murder of Deepali Sarkar, 12, and given a fourth death sentence.

And then comes the real power of the powerful.


On September 10, 2009, The Allahabad high court acquitted Moninder Singh Pandher and overturned his death sentence.[39] He was not named a main suspect by investigators initially, but was summoned as co-accused during the trial. Pandher faces trial in five cases out of the remaining 12, and could be re-sentenced to death if found guilty in any of those killings. The same day Pandher was acquitted, the Allahabad high court upheld the death sentence for Surender Koli, former domestic servant of Pandher.

And where is the media?

It is silent. Why? Because children of Nithari are not Jessica Lal. I have started to lose my faith in the judiciary also.

It seems to me that CBI has successfully shielded another criminal and has covered up the organ trading racket.

Will only post now, when I see some justice being delivered, instead of making the servants scapegoat.

Same was seen in Aarushi murder case also.

Being poor in this country is the worst sin one can commit.
