A 29-year-old Indian-origin guy was billed by Scotland Yard about the killing of three compatriots initially from Punjab at a street battle in east London over the weekend.
He remains under investigation about the murders, while a second person aged 39 stays in police custody.
“Enquiries around rationale for this episode continue, but we don’t think it to be gang-related. Officers at this point aren’t wanting to create any additional arrests for murder,” that the Metropolitan Police said in its upgrade.
The three killed men, originally from Punjab, are yet to be officially identified by authorities but happen to be locally called as contractors Narinder a.k.a. Nik Singh, Harinder a.k.a. Honey Kumar, also Baljit Singh.
Before, the Met Police had stated their analysis revealed that the assault was caused by an”ongoing dispute” involving guys from the regional Sikh and Hindu communities that were known to one another.
An altercation in a wedding reception per day earlier is thought to be connected to the deadly incident on Sunday night after three men, aged in their late 20s and 30s, were discovered with severe stab wounds by emergency services along with pronounced dead at the scene at Seven Kings area of Redbridge.
Scotland Yard’s Specialist Crime Control launched a murder investigation and detained two men on suspicion of their murders.
“We believe those involved were known to each other and by the Sikh and Hindu community, nevertheless we’re still in the process of identifying both the guys and functioning to notify their next of kin,” said Detective Chief Inspector Paul Considine, who’s directing the investigation.
“At this stage, I don’t feel that this was a group or race-related. However, I think there might have been a continuing dispute between people involved. We consider the five guys were involved in an altercation the prior day (Saturday) in Krystel Banqueting that spilled out on the High Road,” he explained.
“The dreadful triple stabbing in Seven Kings at Redbridge last night is a dreadful reminder of this evil scourge of knife crime which continues to plague our whole nation,” he explained.
Jas Athwal, the British Sikh leader of this native Redbridge Council of the region, who joined him on the website, said he considered the triple stabbings have been an isolated incident between the regional Indian migrant community.
More must be performed. We want more police today,” he explained.
