Detectives are re-appealing for information on the four-year anniversary of the murder of Satnam Singh in Yeading as Crimestoppers announce a £10,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for his death.
Satnam was attacked in Attlee Road near the junction with Ayles Road in Yeading as he walked with a friend on 6 March 2017, at around 10:20pm.
At the time, a witness reported seeing a man speaking into a mobile phone and following the pair along Ayles Road. A car then drove up to them and a group of suspects got out of the vehicle and attacked Satnam and his friend. Following the assault, the suspects got back in the car and drove away.
Satnam was taken to hospital for treatment but his condition deteriorated and he never recovered. He died from his injuries on Tuesday, 23 May 2017. A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as bronchial pneumonia and a head injury.
His friend, a 28-year-old man, was not seriously injured in the incident.
No arrests have been made to date.
Detective Inspector Louise Caveen from Specialist Crime, who is leading the investigation, said: “Four years on from the death of Satnam Singh, the investigation into his murder remains very much active and we continue to appeal for information.”
“Sadly, Satnam’s uncle, who spoke of his family’s grief back in 2017, has passed away without seeing his nephew’s killer brought to justice. At the time, his uncle spoke of how the whole family were devastated by the attack and how they were desperate to understand why their relative was killed and who is responsible. I hope that four years on, someone will come forward with information that can bring this family the peace they deserve.”
“Despite the passage of time, we still retain an open mind about why Satnam was attacked. I hope that now, anyone who was reluctant to speak with officers in 2017 may feel able to come forward.
“I would ask anyone who may have witnessed something that night that has played on their mind for the last four years to please get in touch with us. We will be out and about in the local area conducting patrols on Monday 8 March. A substantial reward is being offered for information that leads to a conviction of those responsible and I would urge anyone who knows who is responsible to contact police or Crimestoppers without delay.”
“We are also keen to speak to anyone that knew Satnam at the time, who may be able to provide further information on his lifestyle and extended family.”
Alexa Loukas, London Regional Manager at the charity Crimestoppers, said: “We are offering this substantial reward as, despite Satnam’s tragic death over four years ago, his killers are still at large.
“Satnam’s family are desperate for answers and deserve to see justice done. We know how hard it is for someone to come forward with information, but you do have options, and with Crimestoppers you can do the right thing whilst staying 100% anonymous. We urge anyone with information to find the courage to speak up by contacting us on freephone 0800 555 111 or using our simple and secure anonymous online form at Crimestoppers-uk.org.”
The reward will be available to anyone providing information via the independent charity Crimestoppers that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the murder.
