'Revenge' killers guilty
Two men were convicted yesterday of beating a television executive unconscious and leaving him to die in a burning car in revenge for an alleged attempted sex attack on a student.
Mundill Mahil, 20, lured Gagandip Singh, 21, to her home in Brighton in February last year where Harvinder Shoker, 20, and Darren Peters, 20, were waiting for him. They beat Mr Singh then bundled him into the boot of a car before driving to Blackheath, south-east London, and setting it alight.
The Old Bailey heard Shoker took part in the plot after he fell in love with Mahil, who claimed Mr Singh had tried to rape her. Shoker, of Greenwich, south-east London, was convicted of murder. Peters, from Blackheath, of manslaughter and Mahil, from Chatham, Kent, of grievous bodily harm. The judge warned them to expect long jail terms.
