Ghaziabad, Apr 18: Moninder Singh Pandher, accused in the Nithari serial killings, tonight became unconscious and fell down in his cell in Dasna jail, where he is lodged, jail sources said here.
Pandher, in his 50s, is a diabetic patient and fell unconscious around 8 PM. He was taken to MMG district hospital where he was put on life-saving equipment, jail superintendent Viresh Raj Sharma told PTI.
According to hospital sources, Pandher's sugar-level descended drastically which made him lose consciousness.
Pandher was awarded capital punishment in 2009 alongwith his domestic help Surinder Singh Koli but the Allahabad High Court acquitted him later that year.
The CBI also gave him clean chit in 16 cases of kidnapping and murder. He was lodged in jail in December 2006 and since that time is ailing and undergoing treatment.
His condition was said to be critical till around 10 PM. PTI
