Noida serial killings

Security was tightened at the residence of Nithari serial killings accused Moninder Singh Pandher in Noida on Saturday, a day after fresh violence broke out with protesters targeting the house.

Provincial Armed Constabulary personnel were deployed and barricades have been put up on the road leading to the D-5 residence of Pandher.

Protestors who were holding a sit-in demonstration were taken to an unknown place by the police and released there.

A large number of mediapersons, who arrived to cover the protests, were denied entry and the entire area looked like a military cantonment.

Police sources said no formal arrest was made till afternoon.

Relatives of the victims of the killings attacked the Pandher's house on Friday.

Scores of people descended outside the D-5 residence of Pandher to protest what they called as attempts by the CBI
to "save him" by framing his domestic help Surinder Koli, the second accused in the case.

The protesters broke the security barricades, pelted stones at the house and set on fire the effigies of Pandher and Surinder.
