Nithari rapist-cum-serial killer Surinder Koli’s application to stay execution of death sentence was rejected by Supreme Court. The Petitioner also filed a review petition on the verdict upholding his death which is also dismissed by Supreme Court.

Bench of justices H L Dattu and A R Dave said “Application for stay of execution is rejected. There is a delay of 1153 days in filing the review petition which has not been satisfactorily explained. Even otherwise, we have gone through the review petition and the connected papers. 

“We see no reason to interfere with the order impugned. The review petition is, therefore, dismissed both on the ground of delay as well as on merits,”
