Crimes Against Humanity

A few days ago we covered the story of Lakhwinder Kahlon – a father who was sentenced to lifefor the murder ofhis two-year-old daughter in B.C., Canada. Along the same lines we are hearing news about Moninder Singh Pandher who today was convicted of murdering a young girl, the first verdict in a case involving the deaths of 19 people. Pandher and his servant Surinder Koli were arrested last year after body parts were found near their home in Delhi. Most of the victims were children who had dissapeared in the area in years prior. Pandher and Koli were charged with murder, rape and abduction.

Residents say as many as 40 children disappeared in the area over two years before the crime came to light in December 2006.

The killings horrified people in India and the businessman’s Noida home was dubbed the “house of horrors”. The remains of the children were found hidden in bags. [link]

The crime shocked the country and many blamed incompetent police. Local residents said police failed to act over the abductions and murders because many of those reported missing came from poor families. A BBC article discusses this in more detail,

Nithari, in fact, is an example of how the poor and the weak have just no place in the Indian system. Where else in the world could children be disappearing like they were in Nithari for more than a year without the police registering a case and investigating, even when the parents had alerted the police about their missing offspring? Where else in the world would the courts have had to intervene just to ensure that the police did start investigations?

Could a Nithari have happened in a rich or middle-class neighbourhood?

It seems that it can’t. Just a few weeks after these events, a rich software company CEO’s son was abducted from Noida – not more than 3 miles from Nithari -the case receivedsubstantial coveragewith thepolice workingovertime to solve it. The result? The child eventually returned home safely. What a sad thing it is to know that your child has been abducted and the police don’t find any value in your child’s life because of your socioeconomic status. What a sad thing, indeed.

  1. He used to lure the children of the laborers on the pretext of giving them food, clothes etc and children would usually come with him. He used to kill them and then sell their various organs.

    In one of the newspaper I even read that he used to eat the flesh of the children.

    Is he a human? I think he's one of the family of Wrong Turn 2's characters.

    He is Sick.

    I am sure every community produces serial killers and they are invariably caught and Punished.

    He must be the 'FIRST SIKH SERIAL KILLER " to earn this shameful and highly despised role.

    Do he and Kimveer Gill fall in the same catogery?

    Though Mohinder Singh is certianly more gashtly and horrifying as it involves Children.

  5. He's not a Sikh. So what if he has added 'Singh' to his name. Rajputs also use 'Singh' after their name. And moreover his appearance also resemble Rajputs as he too supports long Mustache but no beard.

    Whatever He is. I have nothing to do with that. Point is -He is not a 'Sikh'.

    Every thing comes with a baggage .

    Good and bad people occur in all society and we cannot be an exception to that.

    This is our dirty back side and we got to accept it.
