Detectives arrested a man yesterday as part of a murder investigation that has been ongoing for more than 17 years.
Police said the 36-year-old man was detained at Heathrow Airport in connection with the death of Harminder Singh Jhaghra in February 1996.
The suspect was arrested after flying into the London hub from India, and is being questioned at a south London police station.
Mr Singh Jhaghra, 28, from the Southall area, was fatally stabbed in the arm, severing an artery, on North Hyde Road in Hayes and died at hospital.
Police said they had been called around 10pm on February 7 to reports of a large group fighting in the street. The London Ambulance Service (LAS) found Mr Singh Jhaghra at a petrol station, after he managed to flag down a passing motorist despite his injuries.
A number of people were arrested following the incident but released without further action, police said.
