New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday will hear the review petition of Nithari killer Surinder Koli, whose execution has been deferred by a week.
A three-judge Bench will hear the counsel for a death row convict present oral arguments for exactly 30 minutes in a review petition against death penalty.
The apex court Monday had stayed the execution of Nithari killings convict Surendra Koli by one week.
Koli was convicted for the murder of a girl Rimpa Halder who went missing in Noida in December 2006. After a police investigation, she was found to have been murdered by Koli.
During the probe, the skeletal remains of many other children were recovered from a drain adjacent to a house in Noida where Koli worked as domestic help for businessman Moninder Singh Pandher.
Both Koli and Pandher were sentenced to death, but later the Allahabad High Court acquitted Pandher and upheld the death sentence of Koli.
Koli's sentence was then upheld by the Supreme Court. He filed a mercy petition before the president which was turned down.
