"Such culprits deserve hard punishmet so that others think a thousand times before committing such crimes". 20-year-old Pinki Sarkar was raped and then murdered by the two back in 2006.

There are a total of 16 cases against Padher and Koli, of which 8 have been decided so far and the Ghaziabad court has awarded death penalty in each case.

Deputy Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has largely taken over the briefings, turning them into an off-camera event. He added, "There's no need for him to pardon anybody".

In February 2009, a Ghaziabad court found Koli and Pandher guilty of killing a victim Rimpa Haldar; both were sentenced to death.

Though Pandher pleaded not guilty in the case, he was found guilty of conspiracy.

Pandher had been convicted in one of the cases but his conviction was later overturned - he was acquitted - by the Allahabad high court. She took the road outside Pandher's residence. Her clothes were identified by the parents. "We have waited 11 years for them to be hanged", Bandana Sarkar, the victim's mother, said. It was alleged that Koli would lure the young girls by offering them candies and then murder them before having sex with the corpses.

The case came to light after police discovered skulls and skeletal remains of 16 people including children from the drain outside Pandher's residence.

It was alleged that Koli would lure the children to the house, offering them candies and chocolates, murder them and have sex with the corpses.
