London [UK], October 14 (ANI): London police have begun an investigation into the murder of a teenager in Afghanistan, local media said.
The victim was 18-year-old Hazrat Wari from Notting Hill, who died in a hospital on Tuesday after being stabbed in a playground outside Twickenham in southwest London.
“The investigation into the murder case has begun, and the Metropolitan Police Department is calling on witnesses and anyone with information to move forward,” the Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement.
Hazrat Wali was an Afghan refugee who studied abroad in the United Kingdom. His family is still in Afghanistan, according to local media reports.
According to Chief Inspector Vicky Tunstall, police obtained CCTV footage from the area and spoke with several witnesses who claimed to have seen the fight before the young man was stabbed.
Detective Tanstall of Specialist Crime Command said:
Elizabeth Chapple, police commander in southwest London, said, “I know there were a lot of people on the scene at the time, so if you haven’t talked to the police yet, contact them immediately. I want to request it. ” Our idea lies with the young victim and his family during this terrible time. Young people do not die in London. We will do everything we can to assist in the investigation of our colleagues.
“Local residents can expect an increase in the presence of police in the area. If anyone has any concerns or useful information, please contact those police officers and tell them what they know.” ( ANI)
