His hands and feet were tied and a towel and several layers of clothing had been tied over his face. He died of asphyxiation and also had broken ribs and a black eye.
Takings of around £1,000 from both of Mr Dogan’s businesses, Aladdin’s and Pizzaman in Lutterworth, were also missing from the bedsit.
Naveed’s car was seen driving away from the scene in the early hours of January 8, and keys belonging to Mr Dogan were seen being thrown from the vehicle as it drove around Leicester.
Detective Chief Inspector Tom Davies, who led the investigation, said: “I am pleased that after a lengthy trial, these three men have been convicted for the role they played in the murder of Mr Dogan.
"Mr Dogan was a much loved husband and father. He sadly never got to meet his grandchild who was born shortly after he died.
“I would like to thank the family, who have shown tremendous dignity and support for the police investigation throughout this case. They have understandably been left devastated and I hope that this outcome will bring them some small form of comfort that those responsible for his murder have been brought to justice.”
All three had denied murder. Naveed and Gader had denied robbery.
They will be sentenced tomorrow afternoon.
