FRIENDS of murdered schoolboy Adil Basharat are battling through the heartache of losing a popular friend to help celebrate his life and pass their exams.
Becky Adams, who helped to set up the Adil Basharat Foundation on Facebook, said: “A lot of his close friends actually witnessed it so feel a lot of guilt over it. Others feel like they’re not safe at school and some are just reminded of that day by actually being in school.
“But students have been offered various things at Kingsbrook and some have been amazingly brave in setting up various events and keeping his memory alive.”
On Sunday, January 9, dozens of people visited the memorial site in The Green in Deanshanger to light candles and replace flowers for the fallen schoolboy – who will be remembered by many for his outgoing personality and strong academic skills.
Becky said: “He really knew how to push people academically, helping them with homework and things. He was a really nice lad and if I can help keep his memory alive then I certainly will.”
A group of his friends, including girlfriend Nisha Patel, have formed the group Immortal Voices and have been signed by record label MKVibe.
The hope to organise a party at Oceana which may see some of the biggest stars of the music industry sharing the stage with some of the city’s best local artists.
