LONDON, June 1 : A man on Friday admitted shooting dead an Indian student in Britain but denied murder and will stand trial later this year.

Kiaran Stapleton, 21, walked up to complete stranger Anuj Bidve, 23, and shot him once in the head at point-blank range in Salford near Manchester, in the early hours of Dec 26 last year.

Appearing at Manchester Crown Court, Stapleton pleaded not guilty to murder but guilty to manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility.—AFP
