A teenager has appeared in court after being charged with the murder of 18-year-old Ghulam Sadiq who was fatally stabbed in Leytonstone at the weekend. 

A murder investigation was launched after police were called to High Road, E11, at 2.15pm on Saturday following reports that a man had been stabbed.

Officers attended and found Ghulam Sadiq with serious injuries.

They gave urgent first aid until the arrival of the London Ambulance Service and the London Air Ambulance, but despite the best efforts of all involved he was pronounced dead at the scene.

A special post-mortem examination gave the provisional cause of death as sharp force trauma to the back.

On Tuesday a 17-year-old male was arrested in Walsall. And in the early hours of Thursday he was charged with murder and with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

He appeared in custody at Willesden Magistrates’ Court this morning.

DCI Linda Bradley, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “Ghulam’s family have been devastated by this terrible tragedy and the thoughts of us all continue to be with them.”
