A man has been charged following the deaths of three Indian nationals in a fight in a residential east London street, police said.

Sandeep Singh of Montpelier Gardens, Chadwell Heath, Romford, has been charged by detectives investigating the trio’s deaths with conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Narinder Singh Lubhaya, 29, Harinder Kumar, 30 and Malkit Singh Dhillon, 37, were found with stab injuries on January 19 on Salisbury Road in Seven Kings and pronounced dead at the scene.

The Metropolitan Police has said they believe five men were involved in another altercation the previous evening at the nearby Krystel Banqueting venue, with the clash spilling out on to the High Road.

It is thought those involved were known to each other and were from the Sikh and Hindu communities.

Gurjeet Singh, 29, of South Park Crescent, Ilford, was charged on January 21 with possessing an offensive weapon in a public place.

He appeared at Redbridge Magistrates’ Court the next day, was remanded to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court on February 19 and remains under investigation in connection with the murders.

A second man arrested over the murders has since been eliminated from the investigation.

Scotland Yard said in its statement that Sandeep Singh, also 29, will appear at Redbridge Magistrates’ Court later on Tuesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8345 3865 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
