    Mr Jogiya and his wife had celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary on 21 January, only three days before he was killed.

    The judge responsible for sentencing the three men responsible for the death of jeweller Ramniklal Jogiya said Jervis, right, was “the brains behind this operation”.

    He said the 24-year-old had planned the crime and recruited the other men. Mr Justice Martin Spencer said Jervis and Mcauley, middle, were both in the van when Mr Jogiya was tortured and had intended “really serious harm” but had not intended to kill him.

    The judge said that Reeve, left, was a lookout and had not intended really serious harm to come to Mr Jogiya.

    Mr Justice Martin Spencer said: "We will never know exactly what happened in the back of that van. Perhaps Mr Jogiya was simply obstinate and refused to tell you [Jervis and Mcauley] what you wanted to know.

    "He would certainly have been terrified. One can only imagine the terror and torment which that poor man went through in the back of that van as the information required from him was mercilessly tortured out of him.”
