These are the first pictures of a man who was stabbed to death as he walked home from a mosque. Mohammed Nabeel Hassan, 22, was knifed on Waterloo street in Oldham, Greater Manchester on Friday afternoon shortly after attending prayers. The 22-year-old had only recently married, it has now emerged.
Devastated friends and neighbours have said that the ‘polite and popular’ Mr Hassan was simply ‘in the wrong place at the wrong time’.
It is thought that he had been heading home after praying at the Jalalabad Jamay Masjid in Oldham and getting something to eat.
Witnesses described a car and foot chase in the area moments before Mr Hassan was fatally stabbed.
They said that he was unwittingly caught up in the chase and attacked.
