A hotel receptionist who bludgeoned to death his one-year-old son in a horrific hammer attack is facing life behind bars today. 

Bidhya Sagar Das, 33, inflicted devastating head injuries on baby Gabriel Bibekdas Sonu at the home he shared with his partner in Wilberforce Road, Finsbury Park.

Das, a night receptionist at the nearby Pembury Hotel, also left another child badly injured in the hammer attack, on March 18.

He went on the run and was captured by the Met Police after a 20-hour manhunt.

At the Old Bailey today, Das pleaded not guilty to murder but admitted manslaughter by diminished responsibility. 

The incident happened in Wilberforce Road, north London (PA)

He also pleaded guilty to the attempted murder of the second trial. 

He initially denied attacking both children, but changed his pleas this afternoon after being assessed by psychiatrists. 

“In light of the conclusions of the various psychiatrists, those pleas are acceptable to the Crown”, said prosecutor William Emlyn Jones. 

Das, who followed proceedings through a Bengali interpreter, expressed no emotion as he entered the guilty pleas. 

Mr Justice Spencer adjourned sentencing until October 12 for further medical reports to be prepared. 

He told the court Das will either be jailed for life or detained in a mental hospital indefinitely. 

Das, of Wilberforce Road, was remanded in custody until sentencing.
