Police name teenager murdered in a suspected fight in west London

A teenager who was murdered in a suspected fight in west London has been named as Simarjeet Singh Nangpal.

The 17-year-old died at the scene having been found with stab injuries after police responded to reports of a fight in Burket Close, in Hounslow, west London at 12.15am on Wednesday.

Four men – aged 21, 27, 31 and 71 – remain in custody after being arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the incident, the Metropolitan Police said.

The four suspects were arrested at the scene and two of the men were initially taken to hospital due to injuries they sustained before the police arrived.

They have since been discharged and all four suspects remain in police custody.

Simarjeet’s family continue to be supported by specialist officers, the force said.

Detective Superintendent Figo Forouzan said: “Our thoughts remain with Simarjeet’s family at this extremely difficult time. No family should have to go through what they are experiencing.

“This incident will undoubtedly cause wider concern, and I want to reassure the community that we will do everything in our power to find those responsible. In the coming days you will see extra officers out on patrol in your area. Please do speak to them about any concerns you may have.”

Detective Inspector Martin Thorpe said: “We are working around the clock to find those responsible for Simarjeet’s murder, as his family struggle to come to terms with their loss.

“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.”

Anyone with information that could assist detectives is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 63/15Nov or to contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
