Surender Koli alias Satish, the man suspected of serial killing, has allegedly confessed to killing nine children and a young woman. Police say that he claimed to have assaulted his victims while strangulating them to death.
He also reportedly claimed that his employer, Moninder Singh, a 55-year-old businessman from Punjab, was an equal partner in the crimes.

Police found 15 skulls buried in the drain behind Moninder’s Noida house, where Surender had worked the past three years. Digging continued late into the evening on Saturday, as police continued to find bones and tattered clothes.
“We are trying to establish the identity of the other five skulls recovered from the drain,” senior superintendent of police R.K.S. Rathore said. Five skulls have been sent for DNA and chemical analysis at the central forensic sciences
laboratory.

“Koli told us that Moninder frequently brought prostitutes home, and when he could not get women, he would ask his employee to bring him children,” Rathore said.

Residents of Nithari village continued to simmer with rage, claiming police did little when they originally reported their children missing. Police was clearly on the defensive. “We had been investigating the missing children cases properly,” Rathore said. “We had even identified the area from where the children usually went missing. It was due to our investigations that the killer was finally arrested.”

Surender reportedly told police that it was at his employer’s behest that he started kidnapping children nearly two years ago. The first recorded case took place on April 19, 2005, when Surender kidnapped three-year-old Harsh. The boy was killed soon after the abduction.
