Two men from Leicester have been arrested and charged with the murder of Anand Parmar, who was found with serious injuries in a car in Evington on April 14. Parmar was taken to the hospital for treatment but died soon from severe injuries on his head and chest.
Jurrat Khan, 25, of Wakerley Road and Renaldo Baptiste, 34, of Marsh Close, have been remanded in custody. They will appear at Leicester Magistrates’ Court later.
Parmar, 47, was found with serious injuries in a car stopped by police officers in Leicester, after it was seen being driven in an “erratic manner.”
Leicestershire Police said that the post-mortem examination found that Parmar, who was also known as Andy, died as a result of “significant injuries” to his head and chest. He is now the subject of a murder inquiry and as a feared victim of kidnapping and theft.
Earlier, other arrests were also made in connection with this incident. A man, 22, arrested on suspicion of murder and a 34-year-old woman who was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender both continue to remain in custody. A trio arrested on Tuesday, a 40-year-old woman and two men, aged 44 and 34, have been released on bail.
In a statement released to police on Wednesday, Parmar’s family said that they were “completely heartbroken by what’s happened and are struggling to come to terms with [their] loss.”
“The moment we were contacted by officers and told what happened will live with us forever. It’s difficult to put into words the feeling that hearing such shocking news gives you.
He was our son, our brother, our dad and we miss him greatly. He was a very funny man, who got on with everyone. He was able to make friends with all types of people and enjoyed the company of others. He loved us very much and we loved him. May he rest in peace.”
The family also called on anybody with information to contact the police and help them with their investigation.
