Police have named 17-year-old Simarjeet Singh Nangpal as the victim of a murder that took place in Burket Close, Southall.
Four men – aged 21, 27, 31 and 71 – remain in custody after being arrested on suspicion of murder.
Police were called at 12:15am on 15 November 2023 following reports of a fight happening in Burket Close and when they arrived along with London Ambulance Service, Simarjeet was found with stab injuries. Despite the best efforts of the emergency services, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Simarjeet’s family continue to be supported by specialist officers.
Detective Inspector Martin Thorpe, from Specialist Crime South 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.”
Detective Superintendent Figo Forouzan, Head of CID in west London 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.”
The four suspects were arrested at the scene. Two were taken to hospital due to injuries they sustained prior to police arrival and have since been discharged. All four remain in police custody in west London.
