Family Appeal Over Leicester Murder
9 November 2011, 15:07
The family of a murdered man has issued a heartfelt plea for anyone with information to contact Leicetsershire police.
29-year-old Harinderjit Singh, of Linden Street, Leicester, was found in the street with serious injuries at 11pm on Sunday night (November 6). He subsequently died at the scene.
The family of Harinderjit has released the following statement: “We are all deeply shocked and distraught by the news of Harinderjit’s death. Harinderjit, also known to family and friends as Harry, was a wonderful son, brother, nephew and cousin and we are all struggling to come to terms with what has happened”.
“We would like to appeal to anyone who may have any information that could assist the police with their investigation, to come forward.
“We have lost someone who cannot be replaced and invite your help in finding those responsible for his death”.
Detectives investigating the death are also urging people to come forward, in particular the occupants of a house in Linden Street who have not yet come forward to speak to police.
Detective Chief Inspector Matt Hewson, who is leading the investigation, said: “Someone out there knows what happened and I would urge them to come forward. I am particularly keen on talking to the occupants of the house that Harinderjit shared in 30 Linden Street, or anyone who knows them. You could hold vital information about his murder and could help us significantly with our enquiries. You will not be in trouble for holding back so please don’t hesitate to get in touch, the information you provide us with will be treated in the utmost confidence.
“We are still also trying to locate the man who raised the alarm and asked for the emergency services to be called and anyone else who knows anything about the murder. Our sole priority is to find out who is responsible for Harinderjit’s murder, any information we can get could help.
“If you do not feel comfortable talking to police then talk to a trusted member of your community who can then pass the information on.”
