Many of the families of Nithari’s victims have got the compensation money, but the fight for justice is far from over.

“Every day a new theory is floated by the police about the motive behind the killings. They are still not sure whether Surender Koli killed our children due to his perverted sex drive or for organ trade. I feel that there might be many more big names involved which the police are hushing up,” said Ashok, father of 5-year-old Max.

For Rita Sarkar, mother of 12-year-old Deepali Sarkar, however, the compensation money is still an elusive hope. She was handed over a cheque on January 2.

On Wednesday, when she went to Sahkari Bank in Ghaziabad’s sector 26  along with her brother, Amar, she was told by the bank that she needed to provide an identity proof to withdraw the money. “The police had helped us open the account. I used to live in Madanpur Khaddar in Delhi before my husband abandoned me. But now I live with my brother. I do not know from where will I get an address proof,” she said.
