Crime chief to speak to Kilburn residents in wake of double stabbing

The meeting has been called in aftermath of Miad Golmakani’s murder

Camden’s youth crime chief will speak to concerned residents about community safety at a forum being held in the wake of a double stabbing in Kilburn.

Milad Golmakani, 22, was killed in the attack on a sports pitch in Mortimer Crescent, Kilburn, in April.

A 17-year-old boy was also found with stab wounds in a shop in nearby Boundary Road where he is thought to have fled after the attack.

The meeting, which has been organised by ward councillors, will be held round the corner from where the stabbings took place in Mortimer Crescent Tenants Hall.

Raj Kohli, the superintendent responsible for community partnerships at Camden Police, and Cllr Abdul Hai, the council’s cabinet member for community safety, will both speak.

Cllr Mike Katz (Lab: Kilburn) said: “We know that when we get into summer and the days get longer and school holidays begin, incidents of crime and anti social behavior can ratchet up quite a bit.
