TWO young men have denied the murder of a doctor close to Buckingham Palace.

Nadim Gulamhuseinwala, 32, suffered severe head wounds when he was robbed in the early hours of July 25 this year.

He was making his way home after a night out with friends when he was attacked in Green Park, close to the Ritz Hotel.

It is believed he was knocked to the ground and repeatedly kicked.

He died in hospital from his injuries on August 8.

Last Friday, William Paton and Thomas Connor, both 20 and from Orpington, denied murder during a plea and case management hearing at the Old Bailey.

Paton, wearing a pink T-shirt and blue tracksuit bottoms, and Connor, in a green T-shirt and grey trousers, appeared via videolink from Feltham young offenders' institute.

They also denied robbing Dr Gulamhuseinwala of a wallet and a mobile phone. Both men sat with their heads bowed as they entered their pleas.

Dr Gulamhuseinwala, from Ealing, trained as a surgeon but had worked as a management consultant for City firm McKinsey and Company since 2007.

Judge Peter Rook QC set a trial date for February 8 next year. The case is expected to last five to seven days.

Connor, of Curtismill Way, and Paton, of Clarendon Way, were remanded in custody.
