New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday extended the interim stay on execution of Surinder Koli, convicted for the Nithari killings, till 29 October.

A three-judge bench headed by justice H.L. Dattu will hear the review petition for the death sentence on 28 October.

On Friday, the court asked Koli’s lawyer Indira Jaising to submit a document with five bullet points citing reasons for asking a review.

On 8 September, the court had stayed Koli’s execution at 1am in the night. Koli’s sentence was to be carried out the same day.

Koli was convicted of killing five children in a house in Nithari village in Noida near New Delhi in 2006.
