Met Police detectives have issued a new appeal for information on the murder of Moosakhan Nasiri, who was killed in a knife attack in Plashet Park, Newham on 15th October 2017.

An 18-year-old man from Plaistow and a 22-year-old man from Stratford have appeared in court charged with Moosakan’s murder.

This follows the arrest and subsequent charging of a 16-year-old boy in relation with the killing.

However, detectives investigating the stabbing believe there will have been witnesses to the attack, and have urged anyone with video footage of the incident to come forward.

Detective Inspector John Marriot, who is dealing with the investigation, said:

We are now a number of months on from when Moosakhan was brutally murdered, and while we have charged three people in relation to this murder, we would still be very keen to talk to anyone with information.

This attack happened in the middle of a busy park and there will have been numerous witnesses to this violent stabbing. I would encourage anyone with information, and in particular any video footage, to submit this to us so that we can bring those responsible to justice.

Anyone who witnessed this incident or has information should call the Homicide and Major Crime Command on 020 8345 3715, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The three people charged in connection with the alleged murder appeared at the Old Bailey on Friday, 12th January and remain in custody.
