London, November 18, 2023: As per media reports, Police arrested Four men on suspicion of the murder of a British Sikh teenager following a street fight in south-west London have been charged to appear before the city’s Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Saturday.
According to the news published in The Tribune with PTI inputs, Amandeep Singh (21), Manjit Singh (27), Ajmeer Singh (31) and Poran Singh (71) — British Sikhs from the Southall suburb of London — were charged with the murder of 17-year-old Simarjeet Singh Nangpal by the Metropolitan Police overnight on Friday.
Nangpal, from the local area, was found with stab injuries and “despite the best efforts of the emergency services, he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene”.
“We are working around the clock to find those responsible for Simarjeet’s murder as his family struggles to come to terms with their loss,” said Detective Inspector Martin Thorpe of the Met Police in an earlier statement.
“Four men have been arrested and our enquiries continue. I would urge anyone with information about how the events unfolded or anyone who may have captured the incident on their phone, dash cameras or doorbell footage to please come forward,” he said.
The victim’s family were supported by specialists from the force. “Our thoughts remain with Simarjeet’s family at this tough time. No family should have to go through what they are experiencing,” said Detective Superintendent Figo Forouzan.
The police were called up to reports of a fight in progress at Burket Close, Hounslow, and attended along with the London Ambulance Service in the early hours of Wednesday.
