DCI Helen Rance, who is leading the investigation, said: ‘Mr Singh was subjected to a vicious assault; the severity of which has caused him to lose his life. My officers are working through hours of CCTV footage and speaking with people in the area to establish what has happened and identify those responsible.’
Mr Singh was pronounced dead at the scene after police and paramedics were called out to an alleyway off Station Road in Hayes on Saturday night.
Mr Singh’s next of kin have been informed.
A post-mortem at Fulham mortuary on Monday gave the cause of death as ‘compression to the neck’.
Officers from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command (Homicide) would like to trace two Mr Singh was since in the company of just prior to his death. It is believed a disagreement may have taken place and Mr Singh was assaulted.
