NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Tuesday rejected the plea by Nithari killer Surinder Koli seeking recall of the judgment upholding his death sentence in Rimpa Haldar murder case.

The apex court bench of Chief Justice H.L. Dattu, Justice Anil R. Dave and Justice S.A. Bobde, in the first open court hearing of the review petition of death sentence cases, said that "we are fully satisfied that this court has not committed any error that may persuade us to review the order" upholding his death sentence.

Referring to the argument by senior counsel Ram Jethmalani that Surinder Koli was not given a proper legal assistance to defend his case, the court directed that in future the trial court will ensure that the accused in other cases be given proper legal assistance by a lawyer of expertise and who can devote time.

Jethmalani said the entire evidence relied upon by the trial court in convicting and sentencing Koli to death clearly shows that he was tormented by the police to give evidence against himself and autopsy report shows that the murder of 14 children was done by medical expert precision with the objective of trading in organs.
