Tributes to 'inseparable' brothers who died in crash
12:56pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
Two brothers tragically killed together in a car crash have been described as inseparable and dedicated to their family.
Haider Kayani, 20, and brother Taimur, 17, of Windsor Road in Wanstead, suffered fatal injuries when the car they were travelling in collided with another vehicle in Dagenham.
Their devastated father Qamar Kayani, 54, said they would go to any lengths for each other and their family.
“The boys lived with the ideology that they would do anything for anybody,” he said.
“Even if they were in the middle of something they would put it down and go to help somebody if they needed it.”
“They exceeded my imagination they way they loved their family”
“The thing I remember about them was their love and care for their family. They were kind-natured, loving and caring.”
“They were two halves, that’s why I think they died together. They could not go out alone.”
Mr Kayani also said they were very close to their 12-year-old sister.
“If they had gone somewhere without her they would bring back food and whisper ‘come here’ and treat her,” he said.
He described Haider as a gentle giant and a naturally gifted sportsman and Taimur as a keen Sir George Monoux College student who wanted to go on to either study law or become a police officer.
Around 1,500 people attended their funeral on August 14, coming from as far away as South Africa and Pakistan.
Cousin Omar Iqbal, 29, who lived in the Kayani family home for 15 years with Haider and Taimur, said the pair were inseparable.
“All the time they needed to be together no matter where they went,” he said.
“Lots of people, even local shopkeepers, have come to the house saying how they remembered the boys because they were so polite and courteous.”
Police are currently investigating the accident on August 10.
No arrests have been made.
