Muhammad Nisham, 39, was arrested last January after he pinned the guard against a wall with his Hummer over a delay in opening the gate of his apartment complex in the southern state of Kerala.
The 50-year-old guard, Chandarabose, was left with multiple injuries and died after suffering a cardiac arrest in the hospital where he was receiving treatment.
“It was a short hearing and the court found the accused, Nisham, guilty of murder,” public prosecutor Udaya Bhanu.
“We have argued for the maximum penalty — death,” said Bhanu. Sentencing takes place on Thursday.
The court heard that Nisham pursued the guard into the complex with his Hummer and squeezed him against a wall before getting out and beating him with an iron rod.
