New Delhi: A special CBI court on Monday sentenced Moninder Singh Pandher and his domestic help Surinder Koli to death in the eighth case of the infamous Nithari killings.

This case relates to Pinki Sarkar's kidnapping, rape and murder.

“There is no scope for the accused’s reform or rehabilitation. This case falls under the category of rarest of rare and both deserve death penalty,” the CBI special judge said.

On Saturday, the court had convicted Pandher and Koli but deferred the sentencing to Monday.

Police had discovered 19 skeletons from Pandher's house in Nithari in Noida on December 29, 2006. Pandher and Koli were charge-sheeted in 16 of the 19 cases, while three were closed for want of evidence. Most of the victims were young girls.

Prior to the Pinki Sarkar case, the two were convicted and sentenced in six cases, while nine are in various stages of trial.
