New Delhi, May 13 (UNI) The Supreme Court today dismissed a petition seeking directions to the CBI to file a chargesheet against Maya Sarkar, who allegedly used to supply girls to Moninder Singh Pandher, the main accused in the Nithari killings case.
A bench comprising Justices B N Agarwal and G S Singhvi told petitioner Anil Haldar to approach either the trial court or the Allahabad High Court, if he was not satisfied with the CBI investigation in the case.
Haldar, father of one of the victims in the Nithari killings case, contended before the apex court that the CBI was trying to shield Maya Sarkar, who was involved in immoral trafficking activities and was actively involved with Pandher and had not been made an accused in any of the Nithari killings cases.
The gruesome killing of small female children came to light, when skeletons and bones were recovered from a drain adjacent to the house of Pandher in Noida.
Several senior police officers of Uttar Pradesh, including those of SSP rank, had been found guilty of dereliction of duty for ignoring the complaints of the family members of the small and innocent victims, who were allegedly subjected to sexual assault, before being killed. Pandher and his servant Surender Koli were the main accused in the killings of about two dozen small children.
