London, Feb 25 (IANS) A medical student in Britain has been found guilty for her role in the killing of an Indian-origin Sikh who liked her.

Gagandip Singh, whom Mundill Mahil claimed had attempted to rape her, was lured to her home. He was beaten unconscious before being left to die in a burning car, the Daily Mail reported.

The 20-year-old woman decided to ‘play God’ when she recruited two men to carry out the fatal attack on Singh, who she claimed had attacked her six months ago.

She told Singh that she wanted “closure” and even reassured the wary businessman following a text from him asking: “Are we going to talk civil or do you want me dead?”

After inviting Singh to her student home, he was kicked, punched and struck with a camera tripod. He was then put into the boot of his car.

The car was then driven to a quiet London side street and set alight.

According to Singh’s post-mortem examination, he was alive when the fire started.

Mahil was found guilty Friday of causing grievous bodily harm for her role in the attack. The judge warned her that it was ‘virtually inevitable’ that she would be given a long jail sentence.

Her two conspirators were also convicted of murder and manslaughter, respectively.
