More grisly finds in drain behind D-5 house
The Noida Police recovers a bone from another drain behind Moninder Singh Pandher?s house, reports Kapil Datta .india Updated: Jan 10, 2007 05:50 IST
The Noida Police recovered a bone from another drain behind Moninder Singh Pandher’s house on Tuesday. Police stumbled on the grisly find when they resumed cleaning of the drain behind Pandher's D-5 bungalow in Sector 31.
It has been sent to a forensic lab for examination. The Noida Police had recovered 17 skulls and other human remains from the drain outside the bungalow on December 29.
Police officials investigating the case said they were not ruling out cannibalism or organ trade as a motive. The police had reportedly found ‘flesh’ inside the fridge kept at Pandher's house. However, Noida SSP RKS Rathore said that it was too early to comment on the findings. "We have sent everything that we recovered from the bungalow for tests. We cannot say whether it was human flesh or not," said SSP RKS Rathore.
Villagers now want the police to scour the main drain for more evidence in the case. “How can police assume that Surender Koli might have only dumped dead bodies in front or rear of his house," said Ashok Pradhan of Nithari.
In other developments in the case, one more police official — Shivraj Singh Yadav, an inspector with the local intelligence unit — was suspended for dereliction of duty.
Earlier, Noida Superintendent of Police Soumitra Yadav and Ghaziabad Senior Superintendent of Police Piyush Mordia were suspended. Mordia was in charge of Noida when most of the missing children cases were reported from Nithari.
Moninder Singh Pandher’s narco-analysis continues
The narco-analysis test of Moninder Singh Pandher, the prime accused in the Nithari serial killings, continued on Tuesday at the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) in Gandhinagar. His cook Surender Koli’s narco-analysis was completed on Monday night.
Moninder and Surender have already gone through polygraph and brain-mapping tests. The killer duo are to be flown back to Noida on Wednesday morning.
Pandher’s narco-analysis started at the FSL late in the afternoon after he was declared medically fit to undertake the procedure which involves controlled sedation with injection of the ‘truth serum’.
Moninder was brought back from the Civil Hospital where he was admitted on Monday night to keep a check on his blood sugar level as he is a diabetic.
FSL Director Dr JM Vyas said that Moninder was required to be kept under medical observation before the narco-analysis.
He was admitted to the hospital on Sunday night too following complaints of chest pain.
FSL sources have said that the results of the narco-analysis would be compared with data collected during the polygraph and brain-mapping tests and any final conclusion can be arrived at only after the entire process is completed.
Although information gathered through the narco-analysis are not judicially admissible, sources said that they would certainly help the police to corroborate with other circumstantial evidences.
