It is now thought that Amar Aslam, beaten to death in a park in Dewsbury was the victim of a popular pass-time for UK teens; 'Happy Slapping'. However, the police did not give much details about vital evidence being recorded on a mobile phone during the attack.
A postmortem found that Amar died of serious head injuries after he was attacked. It is believed that a gang attacked him for entertainment, cash and drugs and may have hit him up to 18 times with a piece of wood.
Local people have described the park where Amar died as a favourite haunt of youth gangs including the aptly named 'Ravey Terror Squad'. It is not known if an organised gang was involved. Neighbours have described Amar as quiet and timid.
