London, May 22 (IANS) A 47-year-old Bengali Muslim woman arranged for her teenaged daughter’s boyfriend to be battered to death after he posted topless pictures of the girl on the internet, a British court has heard.

Gedu Bibi - a resident of London - lured 21-year-old hospital worker Sumon Miah to her home after she saw the naked photos of her 13-year-old daughter.

Once Miah reached there, he was hit on the head with a table leg. He went into coma from which he never recovered. Miah died nine days later from brain damage in October 2006, the Daily Mail reported.

Bibi then got her teenaged daughter to tell police she had hit the victim in self- defence after he turned up with a knife.

Police shut down the case in 2008 but fresh information emerged in 2010 which led to Bibi being charged with murder.

At the trial at the Old Bailey, Bibi was cleared of murder but convicted of manslaughter and perverting the course of justice. She would be sentenced later.
