THE man who was killed in a fatal stabbing in Lower Gornal has been named as father-of-four Yasir Hussain.

The 34-year-old from Nelson in East Lancashire was stabbed to death on Central Drive, Lower Gornal, on Tuesday night.

He has been described as a caring and loving family man, who is father to Adil, 13, Azaan, eight, Malaika, 11 and four-year-old Hazan.

He was in the area visiting family.

Yasir's sister, Siyqa Khamum, 39, also from Nelson, travelled with her mother and father and other relatives to University Hospital Coventry, where her brother had been taken.

The mum-of-two, who arrived at the hospital at around 2am on Wednesday, said: "My mum collapsed and my dad just fell. I was vomiting and I just wanted to go home.

"People have killed an innocent man and taken him for no reason. They have taken him from my mother's life.

"Yasir was a fun loving guy who was amazing with kids and he loved socialising with family and friends."

The family left the hospital an hour later to travel to back to Nelson because doctors would not let them stay at the hospital.They will travel back today to see Yasir's body for the first time.

Ms Khamum posted on her partner's Facebook wall and added: "Yasir was such a caring and loving person, even if he was being hit he wouldn’t fight back.

"We lost a dad, a son and a brother. Please if anyone knows or seen this incident get in touch with the police so we can get him some justice."

Yesterday officers arrested a 20-year-old man in West Bromwich, on suspicion of murder together with a 21-year-old woman, who was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Three men, aged 32, 36 and 41 were arrested on suspicion of murder on Tuesday night and all three have since been released pending further investigation.
