Case synopsis:

Mohammed Hassan, 35, was stabbed to death in Battersea on 3 August 2016.

Police and paramedics were called to Shepard House on the Winstanley Estate at around 6.06pm.

Mr Hassan, known locally as Bashir, was pronounced dead at the scene. A post-mortem gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the heart.

Two other men, aged 35 and 33 years old, also suffered stab injuries. One man flagged down a passing ambulance and the other presented himself to a hospital in south London a short time later.

Five men have been arrested during the investigation but no-one has yet been charged with murder.

The Metropolitan Police are offering a £20,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible.

On the second anniversary of the killing, Detective Chief Inspector Mick Norman, from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: "Two years have passed since Mohammed lost his life in a violent attack in broad daylight, but we remain determined to catch those responsible.

"We have carried out extensive enquiries and made a number of arrests as our investigation continues. My team has spoken with people who were in the area at the time but I believe there are still others out there who have yet to come forward and tell us what they saw or heard.

"Someone knows exactly what happened that evening. Any piece of information, however small, could prove vital in establishing the chain of events that led to Mohammed losing his life in such a brutal manner.

"In the past two years, it is also possible that allegiances have changed, and someone who didn't feel comfortable with speaking to officers, now has the confidence to come forward. I would urge that they contact us, so that Mohammed's family can finally find out why he was taken from them. These people need to be caught."

Mohammed's family, said: "We lost part of us, part of our hearts; feeling cannot be described in words. We have to live with this pain for the rest of our lives but what give us hope is that we believe these murderers will complete their line in prison. Your help is vital and being a witness will give us hope that justice will be brought into place.

"In the end let us remind you with a verse from Quran that encourage you to say the truth, In the name of GOD. 

"And if you are on a journey and cannot find a scribe, then a security deposit should be taken. And if one of you entrusts another, then let him who is entrusted discharge his trust faithfully and let him fear Allah, his Lord. And do not conceal testimony, for whoever conceals it - his heart is indeed sinful, and Allah is knowing of what you do."

Speaking at New Scotland Yard, family friend, Sameh Mahran, said: "Today marks two years since we lost our dearest brother, son, and a friend. He lost his life in a terrible and cruel way without having done anything wrong to anyone.

"The murderers who took his life are still freely living their lives, perhaps spending time with their families - an opportunity they took away from an innocent boy two years ago. We still pray and hope that these brutal murderers will be caught and we will get justice for our brother.

"Please if you know anything about the case, come forward and speak to the police. You might be afraid, you might feel that you don't want to get involved as it's nothing to do with you, well tomorrow you don't know- something might happen to you or a beloved one and you would need help.

"Let's be active citizens of this society, working all together to put things right. Thus, we will all make contributions to a better and more peaceful life we all strive for. Thanks for listening and may god be with you."
