Man bailed after teen's murder

A man arrested in connection with the murder of teenager Ajmol Alom has been released on bail. The 16-year-old, described as a star pupil with "a very bright future" ahead of him, was stabbed in the leg after he and his friends were confronted in Poplar earlier this month.

Ajmol was badly wounded in the thigh, while a friend of the same age was stabbed through the cheek. Both were taken to an east London hospital, where the keen boxer died.

A 21-year-old man arrested on Saturday on suspicion of murder has been bailed to return to an east London police station on a date in mid-September pending further inquires, Met Police said.
