The three men stabbed to death in a street brawl in Seven Kings have been named.

The Met Police have yet to finalise formal identification, however several national media outlets have named the trio as Harinder Kumar, Narinder Singh and Baljit Singh.

The victims, in their late 20s and early 30s, suffered stab wounds in Seven Kings, at about 7.35pm on Sunday evening.

All three were pronounced dead at the scene in Elmstead Road, Seven Kings.

The Metropolitan Police 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.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Considine, leading the investigation, said: "At this early stage, I do not believe this was gang or race-related.

"But I believe there may have been an ongoing dispute between those involved. We believe the five men were involved in an altercation the previous evening at Krystel Banqueting.

"I would encourage anyone in the local communities who knows what the motivation for this attack was, or to anyone who may have seen an altercation late on Saturday evening at Krystel Banqueting, or the incident itself on Salisbury Road, to contact us and tell us what they know."
