Sundeep Ghuman who was a prisoner at HMP Belmarsh has been named as the inmate killed this week. The Metropolitan Police said officers were called to reports of an assault at the south-east London prison at 8pm on February 18.
Ghuman, 36, was found by officers suffering from head injuries and was taken to hospital in a critical condition. Sundeep died in hospital the following day. Two male inmates – both aged 28 – were arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder, and have since been bailed.
A post-mortem examination of Ghuman, which took place at Greenwich Mortuary on February 21, gave the cause of death as a head injury. Police said his next of kin have been notified.
Sundeep Ghuman was jailed for five years and four months in 2011 for a series of arson attacks in the south east London borough of Bexley, the Crown Prosecution Service confirmed.
He was found guilty of two counts of arson and three counts of being reckless as to whether life would be endangered, the paper reported. At the end of his prison sentence, Ghuman was to remain on licence for a further five years.
Detective Chief Inspector Richard Leonard from the Metropolitan Police said: “We are working to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident with the support of the prison and local officers.
“At this stage, I am open-minded concerning motive, but expect this to become clear as the investigation progresses.”
