A UNIVERSITY graduate knifed to death yards from a children’s playground was a ‘prominent’ member of a ‘gang involved in violent crime’ in Sheffield, a senior judge has said.

And he warned 23-year-old Mubarak Ali’s death could ‘further stoke feuding and rivalry’ among groups in the city.

Mubarak, who had just completed a degree in sociology and criminology at Sheffield Hallam University, was stabbed twice in the chest on Mount Pleasant Road, Highfield, by James Knowles, aged 22.
