NOTTINGHAM: A 20-year-old Sikh student has died in hospital following an early hours attack in Nottingham city centre over the weekend.
Arjun Singh, who was studying at Nottingham Trent University, succumbed to his injuries after he was attacked shortly before 4am on Saturday.
He was rushed to Queens Medical Centre where he died on Sunday after the incident in the city’s Long Row. A murder inquiry has been launched.
Officers want to trace two men who fled the scene after the assault.
Detective inspector Richard Monk, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a serious assault which has resulted in a young man losing his life.
“Our thoughts are with Arjun’s family and friends and we would ask that people respect their privacy at this very sad and difficult time.”
He urged anyone with any information that may help the investigation to contact the force.
The senior officer added: “If you were in the area of the Slug and Lettuce public house around 3.45am on Saturday morning and have not yet spoken to the police, I would urge you to come forward.
“We need to hear from anyone who may have dash-cam footage, including taxi-drivers who were in the area of Long Row West and Angel Row at the time, or any mobile phone footage of the incident.”
Anyone with information is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 132 of January 18, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
