LONDON: A 20-year-old 'Psycho' Briton, accused of killing Indian student Anuj Bidve in an unprovoked attack, was on Tuesday remanded to custody until March 20 when the next hearing is scheduled in the widely publicised case.

Kiaran Stapleton, who described himself as "Psycho Stapleton" at

Manchester Magistrates Court on Monday, appeared before the Manchester Crown Court on Tuesday via video-link from prison.

He was remanded until March 20.

After the second post-mortem was conducted on Tuesday, the coroner is likely to release the body of 23-year-old Bidve for repatriation to India.

Bidve was shot dead on a Salford street on December 26. His family members are expected to reach Manchester this week to receive the body.

Today's developments followed a well-attended vigil in Salford last night at the site where Bidve, a postgraduate student of icroelectronics at Lancaster University, was killed from point blank range.

Prayers by a Hindu priest marked the candle-lit vigil as hundreds of people expressed their grief at the incident.

The gathering included many residents of the Orsdall area of Salford, where the incident took place.

Expressing shock at the incident, they said Bidve's attackers had brought shame to the area and unwelcome national and international attention to Salford.

The incident and vigil have been widely covered in the British press.
