Ajmol Alom's mother rushed from the family home and watched helplessly as her son bled to death on Spey Street in Poplar. Prosecutor, Mark Dennis said:
An aspiring doctor was stabbed to death trying to protect his best friend from a masked gang in east London. Snaresbrook Crown Court heard how 16-year-old Ajmol Alom collapsed yards from his home after being attacked by a gang.
The teenager had a bright future and was hoping to study medicine at Oxbridge. He was killed just days before receiving eight A's and three B's in his GCSE results last August.
Aminur Nazir Khan, Muhammod Malik, Mashudur Rahman and Ali Choudhury are charged with the murder of 16-year-old Alom who died on August 12 last year. They all deny the charges.
