Labour politician Varinder Singh Bola’s wife Mundil Mahil who was jailed for luring a Sikh TV executive to his grisly death is set to become a mayoress.
Mahil was a medical student who lured a Sikh TV executive Gagandip Singh to his grisly death is set to become a mayoress just four years after leaving prison.
Mundill Mahil was jailed to six years for causing grievous bodily harm in 2012 but was released on licence in 2014 after she invited Gagandip Singh, 21, to her student flat where he was beaten savagely.
Mr Singh was beaten by 20-year-old Harvinder Shoker and Darren Peters, aged 20 and knocked unconscious then tied up with electrical cord and trapped in the boot of his Mercedes car which was then set on fire.
Mahil served half her sentence and has rebuilt her life by becoming a personal trainer and marrying Varinder Singh Bola.
Mr Bola this week announced he is mayor-elect of one of London’s fastest growing boroughs.
It means Mahil will be free to enjoy all of the perks as well as the pomp and ceremony that her husband’s position brings.
Gagandip’s family today told MailOnline how Mahil’s social climbing is an insult, especially as she only served half her sentence behind bars.
His sister Amandip Kaur Singh, 26, said: ‘That woman lured my brother to a horrible death and yet served just three years in prison for it.
‘She has only been out for four years and is now going to be a mayoress, through her husband, but will be afforded as much respect as him.
‘She will be on his arm at official functions, where she’ll no doubt launch a charm offensive with the gathered dignitaries. But she doesn’t deserve any of it.
‘My brother’s life was snatched away when it was just about to really begin and as a family, we’ve been struggling to deal with it ever since.
‘Yet she’s served a meagre prison sentence, married a high-flying politician and is now trying to ingratiate herself into polite society.
‘Not once has she ever admitted her guilt or apologised to us. She’s moved on and is trying to pretend nothing ever happened.’
During her trial at the Old Bailey, the jury was told that Mahil had ‘played God’ and lured Gagandip to his death by inviting him to her flat in Brighton to get revenge for a sex assault on her.
Gagandip’s body was later found in the boot of the burnt-out wreckage of his car, dumped 60 miles away near Greenwich Park, in South East London.
Mahil claimed she had no role in the attack and although she was cleared of murder, she was convicted of causing grievous bodily harm.
Another man, Harvinder Shoker, who was also infatuated with Mahil, was convicted of murder and jailed for a minimum of 22 years and a third, Darren Peters, of manslaughter, jailed for 12 years.
She has desperately tried to erase her past by launching no fewer than five websites, all carrying detailed descriptions of her achievement
s and strengths.
One described her as a ‘highly conscientious people’s person’ but unsurprisingly there is not one single mention of her victim, conviction or time in jail.
She married Mr Bola in 2016, an Ilford councillor who worked as a senior official in the office of Ilford South MP Mike Gapes and who has been pictured with London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
As his wife Mahil will be free to attend glittering social functions.
