The Daily Mirror reports that a gay bank worker who murdered his wife and burned her body in the back garden in a desperate attempt to hide his sexuality has been jailed for 21 years.

Jasvir Ginday, 29, throttled Varkha Rani, 24, just months after they smiled for pictures and tied the knot at a lavish arranged marriage ceremony in India attended by 700 people. The Royal Bank of Scotland employee then stuffed her body into a patio incinerator, doused her in petrol and set her alight.

A jury at Wolverhampton crown court heard how neighbours and passers-by had seen smoke with a strange smell coming from the couple’s marital home in Walsall, West Midlands. As the guilty verdict was read out, Ginday – who police say was 'living a lie' – stared down at the floor and was told that his actions were 'unbelievably casual and callous'.

Throughout the three-week trial, Ginday insisted he had accidentally killed Ms Rani while restraining her with a vacuum cleaner hose.
