London: A 41-year-old man with roots in
Nepal was bludgeoned to death with a brick just yards from his
home in Croydon on the outskirts of London, police said on Friday.

Umesh Chaudhary was attacked last Thursday as he
walked to work at Tesco in Croydon. His family had just come
to Britain from Nepal after nine years apart.

His wife Rekha, 38, heard his cries during the attack,
which police said was unprovoked.

He died the following day in hospital.

Police have taken an 18-year-old man into custody in
connection with the case.
