Hounslow resident Karamjeet Singh Reel has formally been identified by the police as the victim of a brutal stabbing incident that took place outside a Wetherspoons restaurant on Saturday.
The 31-year-old man, described by his colleagues as “popular, kind, gentle and genuine”, was found with stab wounds near the Tesco Express and central shopping area by the paramedics at 12.30 am, who pronounced him dead at the scene. A post-mortem examination at Uxbridge Mortuary revealed a stab wound as the cause of death.
The perpetrators of the attack have not been caught yet and the detectives have appealed witnesses or anyone with information to come forward and help them out with the investigation.
Detective Chief Inspector James Shirley, Specialist Crime, said, “Our investigation continues at pace to unpick the events that led to Karamjeet’s murder.”
“While we are making progress we still need to speak to anyone who was in the area of Staines Road in Hounslow in the early hours of Saturday, June 25, and saw the events that led to Karamjeet being attacked.”
“I would ask anyone with information, no matter how insignificant you think it may be, to get in contact with my officers – it could prove to be a crucial piece of the wider picture that enables us to identify whoever is responsible,” she added.
Reel is said to have worked at Right Tiles, which paid tribute to him on social media and set up a GoFundMe page in his honour that has already raised around £2,000 in less than a day.
The police have requested witnesses or those with any information related to the incident to call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote ref 189/25Jun. To give information anonymously please contact independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
