Speeches were made at the vigil, which was held just a few hours after the funeral service at the Markazi Jamia Masjid Bilal mosque in Conway Road, Harehills.

Irfan was found with a stab wound in Harehills Lane at around 3.45pm on Friday. He was taken to hospital but died a short time later.

A post-mortem examination confirmed the cause of death as a stab wound to the chest.

A 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named, is due to appear at Leeds Crown Court today (Feb 16) charged with murder and possession of a bladed article.
