Police hope life sentences act as 'deterrent'

Ajmol was an innocent teenager enjoying a summer evening with his friends when they were targeted in an unprovoked attack by a group of young men with knives. This incident highlights the misery that knife crime causes. I hope the sentence acts as a deterrent to those who carry or use knives or associate with others who do so.
