Supreme Court has, on Friday, stayed Nithari serial killer and rapist Surinder Koli's execution until 29 October.

The court is set to hear his plea on 28 October, after which it will decide whether or not his execution should be stayed further, India Today reported.

Earlier this week, Supreme Court had stayed his execution and postponed it for a week, after receiving a review petition from his lawyer.

After his plea was rejected by the President, Koli was supposed to be hanged on 12 September in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut district, for the rape and murder of a 14-year-old Rimpa Halder, and several other young girls.

He was accused of kidnapping children and raping young girls. He had murdered the children and chopped their bodies before disposing them into drains and burying in areas surrounding his employer Moninder Singh Pandher's house in Nithari, Noida.

He was also accused of cannibalism.
