BREAKING…

The Salford murderer of Indian student Anuj Bidve was on BAIL at the time of the shooting.

Kiaran Stapleton, 21, from Ordsall, Salford, was convicted of Anuj's murder today at Manchester Crown Court.

Allegedly, Stapleton was on bail for a road rage incident in Ordsall.

Anuj Bidve's father bowed his head as the guilty verdict was read and his mother weeped. Police officers also cried openly at the news.

Stapleton remained impassive during the verdict and showed no emotion.

Anuj's family are planning to lay flowers at the scene of his murder this evening.

The court resumes for sentencing tomorrow at 11am.
