Hussain Chaudhry, 18, died in his mother’s arms after being attacked outside his home. The teenager was stabbed to death in front of his mother over a designer jacket in England, on Wednesday.
Chaudhry was attacked by thugs trying to steal designer jackets from his family’s home-run business. The first-year law student at Soas University also sold jackets from his home. Witnesses claimed he was stabbed in the neck by an attacker. The latter posed as a customer.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. Meanwhile, the police have launched a murder investigation. As of now, they are hunting two suspects over the murder.
Relatives said his mother, aged in her 40s, and brother, aged in his 20s, were also injured in the attack, BBC reported. Reportedly, Chaudhry’s mother and brother also suffered stab wounds.
The victim’s sister Afia Ahmed Chaudhry wrote on Twitter, “Yesterday my beautiful baby brother left this world the same way he came in, cradled in my mother’s arms.”
“He died defending his family. His eyes were bright, his face showed no pain, he was at peace. To God we belong & to Him, we return. You’re home now baby, I’ll see you soon,” she added.
A family friend told Evening Standard, “He was killed over a jacket, how stupid is that?”
“He sold designer jackets and this guy came to steal them and the victim fought back.”
