A murder suspect who brutally stabbed a man to death at a Dudley flat is still on the run - almost a week after the tragic incident.

Handsworth father, Jaskaran Kang, was fatally knifed at a property on Stourbridge Road in the early hours of Saturday morning.

West Midlands Police have today confirmed that no arrests have been made and that the hunt for the young dad's killer is still ongoing.

The manhunt begun after 24-year-old Jaskaran was pronounced dead at the scene, despite the best efforts of the paramedics.

Officers last week revealed they were treating the incident as murder and appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

A statement released by West Midlands Police on Saturday read: “Jaskaran Kang, aged 24 from Handsworth, was pronounced dead at the scene on Saturday, January 6, at 2.30am despite the best efforts of the ambulance crew to save him.”

His devastated family issued a heartfelt tribute at the weekend as well.

In the statement released by West Midlands Police, the family said: “He was a lovely and caring hard-working father, son and brother who has been taken too soon.

“Everyone loved him and the family and community are in shock and we just want justice.”

Flowers were also left outside the Godfathers Pizza takeaway and neighbouring Mini Mart and friends took to social media for their truibutes.



On Facebook, Gurjit Sohal wrote: “Can’t believe it’s true. RIP my pal. You’ll be missed by many. You were always a top lad and a good, good friend.”

A police cordon remained in place on Sunday, January 7 outside the property while officers carried out their enquiries.

Detective Inspector Justin Spanner, from the Homicide Team, said: “A murder investigation is underway and we are fully committed to finding out who was responsible.
