Simarjeet Singh Nangpal: Pensioner and three other men appear in court charged with murder

A pensioner and three other men charged in connection with the death of a 17-year-old boy in west London have appeared in court.

Poran Singh, 71, Ajmeer Singh, 31, Manjit Singh, 27, and Amandeep Singh, 21, were charged with murdering Simarjeet Singh Nangpal, who died in Southall on Wednesday.

The teenager was found with stab injuries when police arrived to reports of a fight in Burket Close at 12.15am.

All four - who also live on the street where the alleged murder took place - appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Saturday, facing a murder count each.

Wearing grey prison uniforms, they spoke only to confirm their names, dates of birth and addresses and did not enter any plea.

Prosecutor Jordan Pratt did not outline any details of the case and lawyers for the four men did not make any representations during the hearings, which lasted around a minute each.

District Judge John Law remanded them into custody to appear before the Old Bailey on Tuesday.
