Teenager charged with British Sikh’s murder in UK
- United Kingdom
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested on suspicion of murder on Thursday and appeared at Wimbledon Magistrates Court on Friday.
A second 19-year-old man arrested on Tuesday has been bailed to a date in late December.
Officers attended along with paramedics from the London Ambulance Service (LAS) found Rishmeet with stab wounds. Despite the efforts of the emergency services, he died at the scene a short time later, the Met Police said.
“My thoughts and those of my team are with Rishmeet’s family and friends at this incredibly difficult time. I want to reassure them and the wider community that we are working around the clock to bring the person, or people, responsible for Rishmeet’s death, to justice,” said Detective Chief Inspector James Shirley, who is leading the investigation.
“Specialist detectives continue to work at pace to find out who was responsible for this attack. I would also add my appeal to the public to get in touch if they have any information that could help the investigation,” said Wilson.
“I know that this tragic incident will have understandably shocked the local community and our officers throughout the west (London) area share that shock.
“We remain committed to working with the local community to address any concerns they may have,” he said, adding that residents of the west London neighbourhood can expect to see an increased policing presence over the coming days.
