A man has denied murdering two men who who were shot dead near the hotel they owned in east London.

Amarjit Singh, 52, and his nephew Rajinder Singh, 35, were found dead in Forest Gate on 28 August 2003.

Mohammed Ayub Khan, 27, formerly of Chigwell in Essex, pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder and a firearms offence at an Old Bailey hearing.

He also denied the attempted murder of a 26-year-old woman on the same date and will face a trial later this year.

Mr Khan is next due to appear at Woolwich Crown court on 14 November.
