Two Jailed for Indian Origin Man’s Fatal Stabbing
London: Two men who were convicted earlier this year of fatally stabbing an Indian-origin man in west London’s Southall suburb have been sentenced to a total of 40 years in jail. Balbir Johal, 48, was attacked in March and admitted to hospital with stab injuries. He died a short time later.
Detectives from the Metropolitan Police’s Homicide and Major Crime Command launched a murder investigation and established that Johal was involved in an altercation with the two men — Hassan Mohamed and Yassin Yussuf — on Marlborough Road, Southall, on March 19. According to a Daily Mail report on Tuesday, Mohamed and Yussuf were drug dealers and they killed their rival Johal after catching him selling crack cocaine and heroin on their patch.
The two men were charged with the murder. During a trial at an Old Bailey court on Tuesday, Mohamed was found guilty of Johal’s murder. He was jailed for 26 years. (IANS)
