Two youths have appeared in court charged with murder following a stabbing in Denbighshire on Sunday.

The 15 and 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were remanded in custody until a hearing at Mold Crown Court on Thursday.

Wrexham Magistrates' Court heard one of the youths was also charged with wounding another man.

Four other men - Mr Singh's cousin, Amar Singh, 28, and younger brother, Mohanjeet Singh, 18, Ameer Hamza Wahid, 24, and Sanah Ullah, 30, all from Greater Manchester - have been remanded in custody until 2 June, charged with violent disorder.

In a statement released by North Wales Police, Mr Singh-Bhakar's wife, Sushi, said her shopkeeper husband had been a "real family man".

"He was so caring and everything he did was for his family and his two children," she said.

"He was my soul mate and everyone loved him to bits. We will miss his smile and the way he lit up a room when he walked in."
