Before all the naysayers leap in with the "it's in the Daily Mail so obviously a distortion of the truth" line, this has also been reported elsewhere (even on the BBC).
I understand that the Police would need to establish the facts of the case, and I trust that the file that they refer to the CPS will say 'no further action, self-defence'. It looks as though Mr Singh should be given a commendation for his bravery in the face of an armed criminal.
Edited to say: 'Jesus, must learn to type more quickly than the bl**dy nay-sayers'
Indeed. Assuming the Mail is reporting this matter straight, this could be an opportunity here to demonstrate that circumstances DO matter, and that (without condoning vigilante justice) sometimes a particular outcome is an unfortunate but direct consequence of someone's choice to break the law.
Oh FFS. A man died so there has to be an investigation (well this side of the pond anyway). It will look into Mr Singhs actions. If he was defending himself or there was an accident while he lawfully protected himself then he will rightly not be found guilty. If he got one in on a scrote after the danger had passed - murder.
The investigation establishes the facts and the CPS decide if there is a case to answer. I hope justice comes out. If Mr Singh did nothing wrong then I hope he is exonerated and praised.
If the reporting is accurate, the police should be fcuking ashamed of themselves. They already had a warrant out for the arrest of a known dangerous criminal. Mr Singh had knife wounds to his neck and yet they treat him as a criminal rather than a victim. Fair enough they have a duty to investigate the death of this little scrote but they could be a little more sympathetic and they have discretion about what they charge someone with. Murder is clearly inappropriate.
This career criminal should be charged with carrying an offensive and dangerous weapon, failure to observe health and safety, not protecting the weapon so as to cause any injury, failing to give a warning, stabbing without permission, using a weapon in a manner likely to cause injury, breaking and entering the assailants skin, assault, ........ bugger, he's dead, isn't he
