Hundreds of members of the Sikh community have attended a vigil for Mr Singh, who was from Derby and a student at Nottingham Trent university, near to where he died.

Organiser Ranvir Singh said: "As a brother and a fellow student, Arjun deserved a vigil. He was very young, passionate and he had a lot of love for his friends and all his family as well."
