West Midlands Police have charged a second man with the murder of a taxi driver who was discovered fatally stabbed in Solihull. 

Oliver Pugh was arrested in connection with the death of 44-year-old Mohammed Istakhar, who sadly died after being found with serious injuries at the junction of Braggs Farm Lane and Lady Lane last Tuesday.

The 19-year-old from Solihull was charged with murder and remanded to appear before Birmingham Magistrates' Court today.

Mr Istakhar's devastated family have paid tribute to him. In a statement they said: "Our daddy, our hero. Our hard working father has been taken so quickly from us.

"He was our world. He was so loved, respected by the whole of our community.

“He leaves behind his grieving wife, his five children who he loved deeply, his elderly mother, his three sisters, his one brother and fur babies.

“Our Martyr will live on and has set at an example for his children. He will never be forgotten. See you on the other side daddy."
