Several members of the public have come forward after an appeal about a Berkshire murder featured on BBC1's Crimewatch programme.

Opinderpal Singh Randhawa died after being stabbed in the stomach in Elliman Avenue, Slough, on 28 December.

A 24-year-old man who lived at the same address, Kanwarjeet Singh Batth, has not been seen since.

A CCTV image of Mr Batth leaving Slough rail station shortly after the stabbing was shown on this week's programme.

Mr Batth has not contacted his family since.

'Further calls'

A post-mortem examination revealed Mr Randhawa died from a single puncture wound to his stomach.

Det Supt Rob Mason, of Thames Valley Police, said: "Calls from members of the public were received following last night's appeal, which now form part of our ongoing investigation.

"I'm hoping that there may be further calls throughout the next few days.

"We believe that Mr Batth was in the Luton area not long after the incident occurred in Slough last month.

"However, his exact whereabouts at present are unknown."
