A 19-year-old man has appeared in court charged with murdering a teenager in east London.

Aminur Khan, of Robin Hood Gardens, Poplar, east London, is accused of stabbing 16-year-old Ajmol Alom to death on Monday night.

Ajmol, who has been described as a star pupil, was wounded in the thigh during the incident in Spey Street, Poplar.

Mr Khan is also charged with the attempted murder of Azime Rob, also 16, who was stabbed through the cheek.

Further arrests

Both friends were taken to hospital, where Ajmol died.

At Thames Magistrates' Court, District Judge Gareth Branston remanded Mr Khan in custody and told him he will next appear at the Old Bailey on Monday.

A post-mortem examination showed the stab wound to Ajmol's leg had been fatal.

Mr Khan spoke only to confirm his name, age and address during the two-minute hearing.

Police have also arrested a second 19-year-old on suspicion of murder and a 21-year-old man in connection with Ajmol's death. Both are being questioned in custody.
