UK Police hunt for muggers who murdered a brave Indian

The murders of Sukhwinder Singh, who was stabbed to death after chasing muggers who had snatched a woman's handbag in East London on Friday, are still at large.

31-year-old Mr. Singh was trying to catch two muggers who had snatched a woman's handbag near Barking Station. When Mr. Singh caught up with the duo, he was stabbed.

He was rushed to nearby Royal London hospital where he later died.

Police issued descriptions of the two, describing them as black, aged between 20 and 30.

Police also described Mr. Singh, who originally belonged to India but lived in the UK for about 10 years, as 'brave' and his death as 'tragic'.

Commenting on the issue, detective inspector John Sandlin said, "This is a tragic death of a man who was killed for attempting to stop others committing crime."

It was informed that Mr. Singh had cousins in Barking but his wife and son lived in India.
