Hundreds of angry residents of Nithari village of Noida, a satellite town of the national capital, vandalised the home of Moninder Singh Pandher who has been arrested for killing several children after sexually assaulting them.
The mob forcibly entered the compound of the sealed house of the businessman and broke some windows and doors to express their anger against the psychopath who along with his domestic help Satish had allegedly killed several children - mainly minor girls - missing from the village.
To disperse the unruly mob, police resorted to baton charge and deployed Provincial Armed Constabulary personnel to control the situation.
Both Singh and Satish were arrested on Friday.
Meanwhile, continuing their search for the third consecutive day Sunday, police recovered some more skeletons from a drain adjacent to Singh's D-5 bungalow in Sector 31 of Noida.
While assuring that all guilty police officials will be punished for the neglect, authorities suspended two more beat constables who used to do rounds of the village.
Seven police personnel including an inspector have so far been suspended after the remains of the missing children came to light on Friday.
"We are interrogating both the accused and hope to get further details of their activity. Some samples of the recovered skeletons have also been sent to the forensic labs in Agra and Hyderabad," said RKS Rathore, senior superintendent of Police, Gautam Budh Nagar.
He said the report from the labs would help them know the exact number of bodies recovered.
Police had recovered 17 bodies and identified nine of them by Saturday night.
During last two years, 38 children have been reported missing from the village.
On Sunday, Bahujan Samajwadi Party chief Mayawati visited the locality and demanded that the case should be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation.
"We will also write a letter to the Uttar Pradesh Governor and request the central government to impose the president's rule in the state," she said adding that Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav should resign on the ground of morality.
