Three men and a 15-year-old boy have been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Territorial Commander for GMP’s Oldham Borough Chief Superintendent Neil Evans, said: “Mohammed Nabeel’s family has to deal with the most tragic news but have been extremely calm and have supported us with our investigation, which I would like to thank them for.”

The time has come for a tougher approach on law and order, more police on the streets and an end to soft sentences.
