Arjun Singh died after being attacked at 4am on Saturday

Police have launched a murder investigation after a Nottingham Trent student was killed in the city centre.

20-year-old Arjun Singh was attacked in Long Row, near Slug and Lettuce, around 4am on Saturday morning.

He was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre but died yesterday.

Nottinghamshire Police are now trying to trace two males who fled the scene on foot after the incident.

Detective Inspector Richard Monk, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a serious assault which has resulted in a young man losing his life.

“Our thoughts with Arjun’s family and friends and we would ask that people respect their privacy at this very sad and difficult time.

“It is really important that if anyone has any information that could help the enquiry, no matter how small it may be, they come forward immediately. If you were in the area of the Slug and Lettuce public house around 3.45am on Saturday morning and have not yet spoken to the police, I would urge you to come forward.

“We need to hear from anyone who may have dash-cam footage, including taxi-drivers who were in the area of Long Row West and Angel Row at the time, or any mobile phone footage of the incident.

“Please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 132 of 18 January 2020, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
