Alley 'honour killing' man named
Police today named a man found stabbed to death in an alley in what may have been a honour killing.
The body of Saheel Ahmed, 24, of Blackburn, Lancashire, was discovered after it was believed he was chased by another man wielding a knife in the early hours of yesterday.
He was pronounced dead at the scene, off Warrington Street, Little Harwood.
A spokeswoman for Lancashire Police said: "A post-mortem has revealed the cause of death to be multiple injuries. Mr Ahmed had suffered a number of stab wounds consistent with the use of a bladed weapon."
Sources yesterday said one line of inquiry for detectives on the case was the suggestion that it could be a honour-style killing prompted by an alleged affair between the victim and a woman.
Officers were looking at the theory that the murderer may have lain in wait before he carried out the revenge attack at about 1.50am.
No arrests have yet been made.
