Four thugs chopped off a cheating husband’s fingers as they hacked him to death in a feud between rival Sikh gangs.
Gurinder Singh, 28, cried out for help as the masked gang attacked him with knives, swords, a wooden club, and a hammer in Southall, west London, in July 2016.
Mr Singh, also called Sukhjinder Singh, suffered 48 separate injuries to his head and body, and two of his fingers were found at the scene the next day.
Two of the killers covered their faces with turbans and another wore a balaclava as they hacked at their rival.
Mr Singh slept with one of his attackers’ wives in a long-running feud, the Old Bailey heard.
Amandeep Sandhu, 30, and Ravinder Singh-Shergil, 31, were convicted of murder by a jury following a nine-week trial.
Vishal Soba, 30, was cleared of murder, but found guilty of manslaughter and assisting an offender.
Kuldeep Dhillon, 27, was cleared of murder by the jury but convicted of manslaughter and intimidating a witness.
Sandhu and Soba were also convicted of disposing of the bloodied weapons and clothing used in the attack.

Dhillon and Mr Singh lived together between 2008 and 2012, but they fell out when he discovered Mr Singh was sleeping with his wife.
As he was leaving his Southall home late on July 30, 2016, in his black Vauxhall Astra, Mr Singh was followed by a silver Citreon as well as by a black Vauxhall Vectra.
Mr Singh and his two friends parked by Spikes Bridge Road, Southall, intending to buy marijuana, when he saw someone running towards their car with a long knife or sword.

‘That man took the keys from the ignition of their car, the man who was in the driver’s seat got out – he was hit with a sword but not cut and ran out,’ prosecutor Alan Kent QC said.
‘The real target was Gurinder Singh because he was then set upon by three or four males. It was brutal, it was sustained and vicious.
‘There can be no doubt that those who were responsible for wielding the weapons intended to kill.’

Palwinder Multani, 36, who drove the killers to the scene, admitted to manslaughter and became the star witness for the prosecution.
Multani said he saw Mr Singh lying on the floor with two men ‘chopping him with swords’, one stabbing him with a knife, with the other beating him with a ‘wooden bar’.
Mr Singh made it to his feet and limped off but another car, driven by Dhillon, swerved into him and knocked him back down.
Dhillon then said: ‘Whatever happens with that bastard, he deserves that.’

Mr Singh was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery on multiple stab wounds, but he died the following day.
There was a series of battles between rival Sikh groups across the country in the lead up to the killing, Mr Kent said.
After a friend of Singh-Shergil was attacked outside a pub he called in allies from Southampton, Leeds, and Leicester to organise a fight in Birmingham with those he held responsible.
No fight took place, and the rival group uploaded a video to Facebook where more than 50 men taunted Singh-Shergil for ‘running away’.
Towards the end of 2016, Singh-Shergil was the ‘main organiser’ of a group of ten men who attacked a member of the rival group named Butta as he was sleeping.
Jurors heard 200 of Singh-Shergil’s friends came from ‘all over the country’ to confront Butta and his group of about 40 men at a Sikh festival at Victoria Park in Smethwick, on 16 July.
In the ensuing brawl Dhillon, was beaten by Mr Singh and later told a friend he feared for his life.
Judge Christopher Moss, QC, remanded the killers in custody until sentencing on June 22 where they face lengthy jail terms.
