SEX MONSTERS’ HOUSE OF DEATH
Remains of 18 victims found Pair had sex with the corpses They ate body parts as well
A WEALTHY businessman and his servant have both been sentenced to death for the rape and murder of a 20-year-old woman, whose skeleton was found with the bodies of 18 other victims.
Moninder Singh Pandher and his groundskeeper Surinder Koli were found guilty of killing domestic worker Pinki Sarkar, who went missing back in October 2006.
As well as Ms Sarkar’s remains, police found nearly 70 bags stuffed with human remains in sewers in Nithari, a village in the state of Uttar Pradesh outside New Delhi.
The men are accused of killing and raping numerous children and women from the slums close to Pandher’s mansion – dubbed the “house of horrors” – before dumping them in nearby drains.
Investigators say Koli lured victims as young as three into the house where they were raped and murdered.
Servant Koli also allegedly confessed to raping the corpses and eating human remains.
He has been sentenced to death for six other murder charges, and faces charges for nine further murders.
Pandher is facing four more murder charges.
The pair were sentenced to death in 2009 for the killing of a 14-year-old girl, however Pandher was cleared by a higher court a few months later.
Six police officers were sacked in 2007 for negligence over their handling of the case, prompting India’s federal bureau to take over the investigation.
Slum residents, who say police ignored their complaints, report that 40 people – mostly children – have gone missing since 2004.
