3 Sikhs knifed to death in London street brawl

London, January 20

Three British Sikhs were stabbed to death after a street fight between two groups within the community in east London, Scotland Yard said on Monday.

Two men, both aged 29, have been arrested on suspicion of murder after an investigation was launched on Sunday night, when emergency services were called to an altercation in Seven Kings area of Redbrigde, Ilford, and found three men, aged in their 20s and 30s, suffering stab wounds. All three were pronounced dead at the scene. “We believe the parties involved were from the Sikh community and known to each other. A fight has taken place which has escalated, resulting in three persons being fatally attacked,” said a senior police officer. “This investigation remains in its early stages and work continues to establish the exact sequence of events. Residents will see extra officers on patrol,” he said.

The Met Police said its officers were in the process of establishing the formal identification of the victims and informing the next of kin before the names of those murdered could be released following post-mortem. “The stabbing is a tragic reminder of the evil scourge of knife crime,” said London Mayor Sadiq Khan. — PTI
