London, March 14
Three Indian-origin brothers are among four men found guilty of stabbing to death a 22-year-old man over some dispute in London by a UK court.
Kamal Sohal, 23, Sukhminder Sohal, 25, and Michael Sohal, 28, were found guilty of the murder of Osvaldo de Carvalho in Acton area of west London in September 2019 following a trial at Croydon Crown Court in south London on February 16.
While their conviction took place last month, there were reporting restrictions imposed on the case as two other accused were yet to stand trial. On Friday, Antoine George, 24, was found guilty of manslaughter in the case and a fifth accused, Karim Azab, 25, was found not guilty of murder.
“This is a particularly tragic case with Osvaldo’s family having to live with the pain of his loss. We know there had been previous hostility between these two groups and sadly that culminated in the events that unfolded that evening,” said Detective Chief Inspector Vicky Tunstall, who led the probe. — PTI
