New Appeal For Witnesses After Murder

Police in Bedford are still appealing for information about the movements of 39-year-old Inderjit Singh, who was found murdered in the early hours of Christmas Day.

Mr Singh was discovered with a fatal stab wound to his neck on the first floor landing of a block of four flats at Calshot Walk in the Putnoe area of the town.

Witnesses say he had been knocking on doors in the area in Christmas Eve between about 5pm and 6pm, apparently trying to find someone or an address, but seemed to be confused.  

He was found dead on the landing at about 2am on Christmas Day.

Mr Singh was a resident of Bedford, unemployed and believed to have family in India.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the death of Mr Singh - one on Christmas Day and one on Tuesday 28 December. Both have been released on police bail without charge.

Det Chief Insp Steve Collin, of the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: "We have conducted a detailed forensic examination of the area where Mr Singh was found,   and carried out extensive house to house enquiries in the area. However, we still want to hear from anyone who has yet to contact police if they were in the area of Calshot Walk on Christmas Eve, or if they saw Mr Singh or received a knock at the door during the relevant time. We want to find out about Mr Singh's movements and lifestyle in the few days before he died," he said.  "Any information, however small, could help us - we don't want anyone to think that their information is not important or that we already know it."   

Anyone who can help should contact officers on 01234 841212.
