As the judge pronounced them guilty of murder and rape, Nithari serial killings accused Moninder Singh Pandher and Surinder Koli reacted in opposite manner.
While Pandher sobbed, Koli's face was devoid of any expression.
Special CBI judge Rama Jain's judgement saying "Maine dono abhiyukton Surinder Koli aur Moninder Singh Pandher ko doshi paya hai" (I've found both the accused guilty) was greeted by intense clapping from the people present in the room.
People from all walks of life including parents of three victims were eagerly waiting for the first judgement in the case in which 19 women and children were raped and murdered.
The small court room was full more than half an hour before the judgement was to be pronounced. Jain walked into the room at 3.55 pm after which the accused were produced in the room.
Pandher, clad in a white ensemble, looked confident as CBI did not file any charge sheet against him. Koli, wearing a grey pullover and navy blue trouser also seemed to be cool and composed.
