A 52 year old man fatally stabbed in Coventry has been named as Haji Choudhary Rab Nawaz as we continue to appeal for information.

Police were called on Sunday 2nd of October 2022 to the Jamiah Masjid & Institute - at the junction of Durbar Avenue and Queen Mary’s Road - at just after 9pm following reports of a fight involving a large group of men, some armed with knives, outside.
