Hyderabad: A 24-year-old man from Hyderabad was stabbed to death late on Wednesday, allegedly by another Asian at a mall in London, a close acquaintance of the victimâs family has said.
Mohammad Nadeemuddin from Hyderabadâs Old City area was found dead by a security personnel at the parking of Londonâs Tesco Supermarket on Wellington Street, berkshire, where he was employed, according to the information received by his relatives in Hyderabad.
âHis parents and his wife who are also staying in London called up the supermarket management when he did not return from the duty till late. The supermarket staff along with the security personnel of the mall checked the area and found Nadeemâs body in the parking area,â Faheem Qureshi, a family friend of Nadeem in Hyderabad, told Hindustan Times.
The post-mortem was done on Friday. The London police are suspecting the involvement of a Pakistani national, who is also working in the same supermarket.
Nadeem graduated from a college in Hyderabad before leaving for London in 2012, where he found a job in the supermarket. Subsequently, his parents also joined him.
âHis wife Afsha, a doctor, left for London only 25 days ago. She is pregnant and cannot come back to India as rules do not permit her travel,â Qureshi said.
Nadeemâs wife, who is in a state of shock, is undergoing psychological counselling.
âThey (Nadeemâs family) cannot bring the body to Hyderabad for last rites. In all probability, the burial would take place in London,â Qureshi said, adding he and a few other relatives were planning to leave for the UK to attend the last rites.
He said he had mailed letters to Union Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj and Telangana Home Minister Mohd Mahmood Ali, requesting their help in the relatives travelling to London.
Apparently, Nadeem had got a permanent residency and was awaiting UK citizenship in the next few months as the process was nearly completed.
