First picture of teenager Ghulam Sadiq as police murder investigation continues following a fatal stabbing in Leytonstone

Police have released the first image of a teenager after a fatal stabbing in Leytonstone. At 2.15pm on Saturday, August 6, police were called to High Road, E11, following reports of a man being stabbed. Officers responded and provided emergency first aid until the London Ambulance Service and the London Air Ambulance arrived. Despite the best efforts of emergency personnel, the man died at the scene. Ghulam Sadiq, an 18-year-old from the area, has been identified. His family has been notified and is being assisted by specialist officers. In due course, a special post mortem will be performed. There have been no arrests at this early stage of the investigation. Our heartfelt thoughts are with Ghulam’s family as they come to terms with this terrible tragedy, which no family should have to endure,” said Detective Chief Inspector Linda Bradley of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command. “On a summer Saturday afternoon, he was attacked in broad daylight on the busy High Road.” I know this will shock and anger the local community, and I want to assure them that we will do everything possible to identify and prosecute those responsible. “The area was probably busy at the time of the incident.” I would encourage anyone who witnessed anything noteworthy to come forward and speak with us. “Did you witness the attack? Did you witness a fight? Did you notice anyone acting in an unusual or suspicious manner? Do you have any dashcam footage from being in the area at the time? We’d like to hear from you. There is no information that is too minor. “I’d also like to thank the local businesses and residents who have been inconvenienced by the road closures around the crime scene for their patience and cooperation as we conduct this critical first phase of our investigation.” We’ll work as thoroughly and efficiently as possible.” Anyone with information is asked to call police at 101, quoting case number 3896/06AUG. You can also provide information, images, or footage by going to the Major Incident Public Reporting Site and searching for Operation Waspgreen. Anonymous information can also be given to the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or visiting the Crimestoppers website. Tough decisions save lives.
