The gunman who killed Anuj Bidve chose his victim 'only because he had the biggest head', Manchester Crown Court heard during the murder trial yesterday

Kiaran Stapleton (21) of Ordsall, is on trial for the murder of the Indian student and while in prison he threw a bucket of hot sugared water over a man and carried out an assault using billiard balls in a sock.

The jury heard how Stapleton — who admitted to shooting Bidve on Boxing Day last year — chose his victim ‘because he had the biggest head’.

Prosecution expert Dr Adrian West asked Stapleton why he singled out Bidve while he was among a group of friends

He said: “[Stapleton] replied, ‘only because he had the biggest head’.”

Dr West said Stapleton added, “I blew a hole in his head. There is nothing I can say, nothing whatsoever. They should have got a taxi. Things would have been different if they had got a taxi.” Bidve was cutting through Ordsall Lane with friends on the way to Boxing Day sales when he was approached by the defendant and shot.
