Earlier this month Hamza Mahmood, 18, of Shaggy Calf Lane, Slough, and Mohammed Hussain, also 18, of Benjamin Lane, Slough, were charged with Mr Ashraq's murder.

Another 18-year-old man, also from Slough, who was arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, has been bailed until 4 February.

Mr Ashraq's family previously said they could not understand "why someone would do such a terrible thing".
