September 8 , 2014
The execution of an Indian man in a murder case that’s been called the “house of horrors” has been put on hold by the country’s Supreme Court, as per media reports.
Surinder Koli and Moninder Singh Pandher were convicted in 2009 for murdering a teenage girl. Pandher was freed for this crime by a higher court.
The country’s highest court has allowed for a final appeal.
Around 20 children and young women were raped and murdered, with many bodies mutilated, in a house in Noida, which is a suburb of Delhi. Pandher was the owner of the house and Koli worked as his domestic help.
