THE mother of teenager Isschan Nicholls who was stabbed in a fight in London’s East End has made a fresh plea today to track down his killers.
Isschan, 18, was attacked on January 13 by up to 15 youths at Parnell Road in Bow with weapons including baseball bats and planks of wood.
Police arrived at the scene at around 9pm and found Isschan and a 17-year-old with stab wounds.
Both were taken to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel. But Isschan died two days later.
“There are people harbouring others who have carried out this evil, vicious attack,” said his mother Jennifer Williams.
