Cape Town - A British national who petrol bombed the home of his ex-girlfriend's parents was found guilty of attempted murder by the Cape Town Regional Court on Wednesday.

Shumsheer Singh Ghumman, 33, a former investment manager at a major bank in the UK, was convicted of attempted murder, incitement to commit murder, malicious damage and fraud.

Magistrate Herman Pieters postponed the matter to May 16 for sentencing proceedings.

Ghumman said he was in a relationship with a South African woman, Hannah Rhind, who worked as a public relations executive in London.

When the relationship became too serious for her comfort, she ended it and informed her father Philip Rhind.

Ghumman became incensed when the father intervened, and took revenge on him.

He was arrested in January last year.
