A 16-year-old boy has been charged by po­lice with the mur­der of a man in Rosedale Park in Hayes.

The teen, who can­not be named for le­gal rea­sons, was due to ap­pear in cus­tody at Wim­ble­don Youth Court as the Gazette went to press on Tues­day ac­cused of mur­der­ing Har­jit Singh Du­lai and pos­ses­sion of an of­fen­sive weapon.

Mr Du­lai, 44, was found by the ten­nis courts in Rosedale Park, off Al­bion Road on Wed­nes­day Jan­uary 27 and died in hos­pi­tal,

A post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion took place at Uxbridge Mor­tu­ary on Fri­day Jan­uary 29, and gave the cause of death as a stab wound.

Five men were ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of the mur­der. Po­lice said four, aged 19, 20, 28 and one in his 40s, had been re­leased on bail pend­ing fur­ther en­quiries. A fifth man, aged 39, was re­leased with no fur­ther ac­tion pend­ing.

The teenage sus­pect was ar­rested on Sun­day Jan­uary 31 by po­lice in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­der.

The Met’s Homi­cide and Ma­jor Crime Com­mand is par­tic­u­larly keen to hear from a man cy­cling through the park with his dog.

He gave di­rec­tions over the phone to am­bu­lance staff rush­ing to the scene and may have vi­tal in­for­ma­tion.

De­tec­tive Chief In­spec­tor Noel McHugh said: “Our in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Har­jit’s mur­der con­tin­ues at pace and I would re­it­er­ate my ap­peal to any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact my of­fi­cers.

“If you were in Rosedale Park or Al­bion Road around 6.40pm on Wed­nes­day 27 Jan­uary and no­ticed any­one cut­ting through the area which runs be­tween the rear of the pav­il­ion and Al­bion Road, then please call po­lice.

“There are peo­ple who will know ex­actly what hap­pened to Har­jit and I would urge those who have in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward. Any in­for­ma­tion pro­vided will be dealt with dis­cretely and sen­si­tively.”

Any­one who can help can call the in­ci­dent room on 020 8785 8099, or con­tact Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111 or at crimestop­
