They were remanded to custody, and are will before the Leicester Crown Court.

Tributes have poured in following Das' killing.

Das' parents said: “Nitu was a dearly loved son who will be deeply missed. This is a very hard time for my family and I would like to thank all of those who have and are continuing to support us”. — PTI
