Main convict in 2006 Nithari killings case Surendra Koli was found guilty in Nanda Devi murder case on Wednesday.
According to reports, now the quantum of punishment to be pronounced on October 7th.
Earlier, the Supreme Court sought the response of Koli on a plea of the Uttar Pradesh government against the Allahabad High Court verdict that commuted his death penalty to life term earlier this year.
A bench of Chief Justice H L Dattu and Justices Amitava Roy and Arun Mishra issued notice to Koli on the UP government’s petition against the high court order that had rapped it up for “inordinate delay” in deciding Koli’s mercy petition.
On January 28, this year, the Allahabad High Court had commuted the death sentence, awarded to Koli, to life term in the murder of 14-year-old Rimpa Haldar.
Koli was sentenced to death by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad on February 13, 2009.
The high court had passed the order while allowing a PIL filed by People’s Union for Democratic Rights, clubbed with another petition filed by Koli himself.
