LONDON: Three teens have been charged with the murder of a 20-year-old Syed Jamanoor Islam who was stabbed to death in east London. Syed died in hospital after an “altercation” with a group while with friends in Mile End, east London, at around 4.45pm on Tuesday 11 April. Nayeem Chowdhury, 18, from Mile End, a 15-year-old from Seven Kings, Ilford, and a 17-year-old from Bow, east London, have been charged with murder, Scotland Yard said. They will appear in custody at Bromley magistrates’ court on Tuesday. Islam was one of three people stabbed to death in London in little more than 24 hours last week. Abdullahi Tarabi, 19, died on the same day as Islam after being stabbed in Northolt in north-west London. Three 19-year-olds and an 18-year-old have been arrested on suspicion of murder. Rene Richardson died after being attacked by two men in Plumstead, south-east London last Monday. A 23-year-old man was arrested in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, on suspicion of murder.
