LONDON: British police investigating clashes between groups of men on the streets of the eastern England city of Leicester following an India-Pakistan cricket match earlier this year have made 12 more arrests over the course of December. Police said this week that its investigating team is working through the evidence and has identified a number of suspects and carried out inquiries to work up to making over 47 arrests.
A further 12 men were arrested in the last few weeks and one was voluntarily interviewed, with three of them being charged with offences relating to disorder offences. “We’ve been re viewing the CCTV footage making IDs of those who may be involved,” police said. The people have been arrested on suspicion of v iolent disorder in the clashes that took place in September. Three of the m — Jadved Patel, 46, Zakir Umarji, 26, and Hassan Chunara, 28 — will appear before magistrates’ court next month. The arrests are part of an ongoing probe into what police termed as “serious
disorder” and “significant aggression” as groups of men, believed to be largely from local Hindu and Muslim communities, clashed in the wake of the India-Pakistan cricket match in Dubai at the end of August.
