Young Nahid Islam was cycling near his home on Saturday when he was hit by a motorcycle as he cycled to the shop to collect a cake for his 16th birthday party, according to the Evening Standard.
The events occurred near Belsize Park and although a medical team tried to save him, Islam had died from multiple injuries in the afternoon.
“His mum called him up and said, ‘It’s quite a big cake, I need your help to carry it.’ He must have been rushing,” said Shomon Rahman, his cousin.
It was reported that his mother, Sultana Begum, was also in a state of shock after having seen her son lying in the road in the aftermath of the accident.
“No one would had a bad word to say about him never once saw him angry in his entire life,” said Mohammed Fokrul Islam, Nahid’s father, who added that he “would never forget” his cricket-loving son.
Mourning the Young Boy
His house is currently decorated in flowers, birthday balloons and candles in mourning. Additionally, friends and relatives held a vigil for the teenager who died tragically although he had been rushing to help his mother bring the cake for his party.
Baitul Amman mosque also gathered people for prayers yesterday.
A Met police spokesman had said that: “Officers are appealing for anyone who was in the area and witnessed the collision, or the events leading up to the collision, to contact police.”
Since no suspects have been arrested, it was also specified that policemen were particularly interested in tracing a suspected white Vauxhall Mokka.
