London, Nov 25 (IANS) Ex-van driver Maninder Pal Singh Kohli was Tuesday found guilty of the rape and murder of 17-year-old student Hannah Foster - more then five years after he ran away to India in a bid to escape police and live out a new life.The conviction by the jury at Winchester Crown Court rang the curtain down on a case that saw the victim’s parents take their campaign to track down Kohli all the way to India, before he was spotted by residents of Kalimpong town, living a new life in the mountains of West Bengal.

The 41-year-old father of two fled Britain after Foster’s murder March 14, 2003, in the city of Southampton. Her body was found two days later, strangled and lying in a bramble-filled ditch by the side of a road, a short walking distance from her home.
