It has been revealed that a murder suspect is also accused of trying to kill his own mother and sister at a wedding party.

Hassan Jhangur appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court accused of murdering Chris Marriott.

A wedding party in Sheffield’s Burngreave suburb erupted into a row between the bride and groom’s families.

The fracas resulted in a person being left unconscious.

Mr Marriott – who lived nearby – tried to help the stranger but was run over by a speeding car and later died.

Jhangur, aged 23, is also charged with the attempted murders of five other people.

It is reported that this includes Ambreen Jhangur, believed to be the suspect’s mother, and Nafeesa Jhangur, who is understood to be his sister.

It is believed that Nafeesa was the unconscious person being helped by Mr Marriott.

During the brief hearing, Jhangur only confirmed his name, age and address before the six charges with read to him.

Jhangur is accused of attempting to murder the groom Hasan Khan, his father Riasat Khan and local Labour councillor Alison Norris.

The groom suffered stab wounds while his father suffered head injuries.

Both have been released from hospital and allowed to return home after police lifted a cordon surrounding the property.

An argument erupted after Hasan Khan had married his girlfriend Amani at a mosque near their homes in Sheffield.

Mr Marriot had been walking with his wife and two young sons near their home when he rushed to help the woman, who was lying in the road.

While his family went home, he and others tried to provide first aid but were knocked down as a car drove into the crowd.

Mr Marriot was described as “a wonderful husband, dad, brother, uncle – and friend to many”.

His family said he devoted much of his life to helping others including at Sheffield College, Jubilee Foodbank and Debt Advice, Voluntary Action Sheffield, Community Money Advice (CMA) and as a trustee of MASKK (Manor and Castle After School and Kids Klubs).

The statement continued: “The circumstances of his death, although tragic and unfathomable to us his family, show the sort of man he was – to go to help rather than to turn away.

“Chris was also a man of faith who wanted others to also experience the joy he had found trusting in Jesus.

“We take comfort in these most difficult of times in our belief that he is with his Lord and Saviour, while we mourn his loss.”

His family have urged anyone with information to share it “so that we can understand better the circumstances in which he died”.

Jhangur will appear at Sheffield Crown Court on January 2, 2024.
