Man charged with Ilford murder

October 1st 2010

A homeless man was killed and two others left in a serious condition after a brutal attack in Ilford, East London.

The incident took place between 11.30pm and midnight on Wednesday 8 September near Buckingham Road Cemetery.

According to a report in the Ilford Recorder, 31-year-old Harbarjan Singh died as a result of a blunt trauma to his head and neck. While their names have not yet formally been released, the Romford Recorder identifies the other two victims as Jit Singh and Harteerth Singh. According to latest police reports, both men are in a serious but stable condition at an East London hospital. The newspaper also reports that the three men were not related and often slept in a car park near business premises on Clarks Road.

Police first heard of the attack when they were called to reports of an injured man on Ilford High Road at around 1am on Thursday 9 September. Later that day, at around 3.30pm, a member of the public notified them about another injured man near the cemetery. However, the body of Harbarjan Singh was not discovered until 8pm, following a police search of the area. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jaswinder Singh, 47, of Town Road, Enfield, appeared at the Old Bailey on Thursday 16 September charged with murder and attempted murder. His appeal for bail was refused, and he was remanded in custody. He will submit his plea at his next court appearance on 21 December.
