Statement on the one year anniversary of the passing of Anugrah Abraham

NPMP and Kids of Colour

04 March 2024

On the one year anniversary of the passing of Anu Abraham, we again extend our love and solidarity to his loved ones. 

As his friends and loved ones have noted, Anu was a wonderful, caring, kind and compassionate young man.  

Anu was let down so horrendously by institutions that failed to show him the care he deserved.  

We are dismayed, if not surprised, that these failures have continued after his passing. Anu’s family are still having to search and fight for justice and accountability. 

As long as Anu’s family remains committed to seeking justice, we will stand with them. 

As Anu’s family have made clear, questions must be answered regarding institutional racism, inadequate mental health support and a lack of duty of care, in both West Yorkshire Police and Leeds Trinity University. 

We invite others to learn about Anu, the terrible injustice which brought about his passing, and to raise the alarm for justice.
