Demanding death penalty for the accused in the Noida children serial killing case, angry youth on Sunday held a protest outside the palatial bungalow in Chandigarh of the businessman involved.
The protestors, mostly from the Bajrang Dal, shouted slogans outside the house of Moninder Singh Pandher in Sector 27.
Pandher and his servant Surendra Kohli were arrested on Friday by the police in Noida on the outskirts of Delhi after it was revealed that the skeletons of 17 children had been buried behind Pandher's house there.
"We want death penalty for these men, including this rich businessman, for murdering small children in cold blood," the leader of the protestors said.
The protest continued for over 30 minutes. Several onlookers from the elite neighbourhood also gathered. Police were deployed to prevent any untoward incident.
Occupants of Pandher's house locked themselves inside. His wife Devinder Kaur and son Karan stay in the house.
Chandigarh police officials said they were investigating whether Pandher was also involved in over a dozen cases of missing children in a slum locality of Bapu Dham - not far from the office of his transport company.
