Two men have been charged with murder following a fatal collision on the A46.
Raees Jamal, 21, of Lingdale Close, Leicester, and Rekan Karwan, 28, of Tomlin Road, Leicester, have both been charged with murder in connection with the incident which happened at around 1.30am on Friday (February 11) on the A46 just before the Six Hills junction.
The incident involved a silver Skoda Fabia which had left the carriageway and ploughed into the central reservation. Two men who were inside the car were pronounced dead at the scene.
They have been named as Mohamed Hashim Ijazuddin and Saqib Hussain.
Following initial enquiries into the collision, two other cars were reported to have been travelling in the area at the same time of the collision – a grey Audi TT and a blue Seat Leon.
The men charged have been remanded into custody and are due to appear at Leicester Magistrates Court tomorrow.
Natasha Akhtar, 21, of Alum Rock Road, Birmingham; Ansreen Bukhari, 45, and Mahek Bukhari, 22, both of George Eardley Close, Stoke, were yesterday charged with murder and appeared earlier at Leicester Magistrates’ Court.
They have been remanded into custody to appear at Leicester Crown Court tomorrow at 10.00am for a bail application hearing.
A 20-year-old man, arrested on Friday on suspicion of murder, has since been released from police custody with no further action to be taken.
