men arrested for killing NRI constable Patel-Nasri
London, Dec. 07, 2006
Police have arrested two men for the murder of special
constable Nisha Patel-Nasri who died after being stabbed in the
leg by an attacker outside her home in Sudbury Avenue, Wembley,
north-west London, on May 11. She was off duty when she was attacked
outside her house, found in her nightclothes and police say she
may have come out of the house after hearing someone tampering
with cars parked outside.
Detectives have also recovered an Audi A4 believed
to be linked to the attack from a street in south-west London.
Police said a 37-year-old man from north London and a 41-year-old
man from east London were arrested in the early hours of Wednesday
morning. Detectives have also recovered an Audi A4 which they
believe was the one they had been looking for after it was seen
"acting suspiciously"in a nearby street at the time
of the murder.
Mrs Nisha Patel-Nasri was a professional hairdresser
and part time volunteer police officer for three years.

had been stabbed to death with her own kitchen knife and said

DNA evidence which could identify the perpetrator. Police confirmed

A4 saloon car which was seen in the vicinity of the murder about
an hour before and then immediately afterwards might helpful.
On the night of her death Mrs Patel-Nasri and her
husband had had dinner together to celebrate their third wedding
anniversary. Mrs Patel-Nasri's husband, Fadi, had left the house
shortly before the murder and detectives are investigating whether
the intention had been to burgle the property or to steal two
expensive limousine-style vehicles which were parked outside.
Her husband, Mr Nasri ran a limousine hire business and police
have also investigated whether the motive for the offence could
have been connected, or whether it could have been linked with
Mrs Patel-Nasri's work as a special constable.
The suspect car is a light grey Audi A4 saloon,
featuring a black underseal which does not match its bodywork,
a possible blemish on the roof and an inoperative nearside rear
registration plate light.
It was seen in Harrowdene Road, which runs parallel to Sudbury
Avenue, on two occasions on the night of Mrs Patel-Nasri's death.
Just one hour before her murder it was captured on CCTV in Harrowdene
Road turning left into East Lane. A few seconds later it reappeared
on the CCTV, having apparently performed a U-turn, reversing the
manoeuvre and turning back into Harrowdene Road.
Two to three minutes after the stabbing, the vehicle was seen
again in Harrowdene Road. This time it pulled over to the side
of the road and waited for about seven seconds with its headlights
on before pulling out towards the same junction with East Lane.
The vehicle had apparently come from the direction of Sylvester
Road where a suspect was seen just moments after the murder.Detectives
are investigating whether the car pulled over in Harrowdene Road
to pick up the man, who has been described as a black male in
a hooded top. Police believe the car was manufactured between
2001 and 2004. There are approximately 6,000 similar vehicles
in the country, including 1,000 in London.
