Sikh stabbed to death in London

Sukhwinder Singh, 31, was attacked while pursuing the two muggers who had robbed a 28-year-old woman near Barking station; and when he caught up with the pair a fight broke out and he was knifed around 7 pm on Friday, according to the Metropolitan Police. Singh, a builder who had lived in Britain for 10 years, was immediately taken to Royal London Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Describing Singh’s actions as “very brave”, Detective Inspector of Metropolitan Police John Sandlin told the media: “This is a tragic death of a man who was killed for attempting to stop others committing crime, and our thoughts are with Sukhwinder’s family.

The Metropolitan Police has issued descriptions of two suspects and also urged anyone who had seen the robbery, the following altercation or people fleeing the area, to approach officers.
