Serial killer of 23 children of Jalandhar dies in Patiala jail

Jalandhar, Jun 10 (UNI) A serial killer, who had taken lives of 23 children, has died in Patiala jail.
Convict Darbara Singh was said to be ailing, following which he was taken to hospital, where he died during treatment on Saturday. The jail authorities apprised his family about the death, but his wife declined to take the body to her home.
With the death of Darbara, an era of terror and panic among the children and families of the migrants had come to an end in Jalandhar and surrounding areas.
Darbara had pledged to kill at least 100 children of the migrants to take revenge from them for his conviction and 30-year imprisonment in 1997 for three cases of rape and attempt to murder. He was put in Kapurthala jail, from where he was shifted first to Jalandhar Central jail and then to Ludhiana Central jail.
On December 3, 2003, his mercy petition was accepted and the outlaw was released from jail on the basis of his good conduct. By this time, he had developed a grudge against the migrants, holding them responsible for his jail term.
He abducted 23 children of migrant labourers during seven months period from April, 2004 to October, 2004. Many of these children were sexually assaulted. Local police started investigating the abduction cases followed by brutal murders of the children and nabbed Darbara on October 29, 2004, when it received information about a bicyclist, who resembled the sketch and was seen with a bag of toffees.
After his arrest, Darbara showed no remorse, even when he was taken to the sites where he had dumped the bodies. He told the police that he could have killed more children, if he had not been arrested.
The convict further said that he targeted a Punjabi girl by mistake, who he had to kill, because she could have created problems for him.
