The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will soon file a chargesheet in the infamous Nithari serial killings case that records more than 20 women and children allegedly raped and killed. But the agency has failed to find adequate evidence against the two accused.
According to official sources, there is no strong evidence against the accused Moninder Singh Pandher, the owner of D-5, Noida, where the human remains were found, to prove his involvement in the murders.
The sleuths believe that he was aware of the killings and his servant Surinder Koli had committed the heinous crimes. Pandher is being named only as a conspirator for allowing Koli to use his house for the rapes and murders.
However, Koli has reportedly confessed to most of the killings but the investigating agency has not found much in his statements to implicate Pandher.
"We are still investigating, it seems most murders were committed by one of the two accused persons," a senior CBI official said.
Pandher and Koli were arrested on charges of kidnapping, sexual molestation and the murders after the police recovered human skulls and body parts from a drain behind Pandher`s residence.
