Auckland: An Indian-origin man who stabbed a student to death in Wellington in May this year has pleaded guilty to committing murder, a media report said on Wednesday.
Mandeep Singh, 29, pleaded guilty in the Auckland High Court to killing Parmita Rani and attempting to murder Parminder Sandhu, 22, Radio New Zealand reported.
The guilty plea came as a surprise as Singh had previously pleaded not guilty to both the charges.
Justice Simon Moore has remanded Singh until September for sentencing.
