POLICE have confirmed the name of a man stabbed to death during a brawl in a Bradford street.  
Sarfraz Khan, aged 35, of Great Horton, died in hospital shortly after he was involved in a disturbance in Cecil Avenue, which broke out at about 10.15pm on Thursday. 
A post mortem examination revealed he died from a stab wound to his chest.
Seven men aged between 19 and 38 remain in custody today after being arrested on suspicion of murder.
A 32-year-old man who was also stabbed in the incident remains in hospital in a stable condition.
A 27-year-old man, who also suffered stab wounds, and a 33-year-old woman, who was treated for minor injuries as a result of the incident, have since been released from hospital. 
Police said they are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with the incident, which is believed to be linked to a family dispute.
Enquiries into the incident are continuing.
Friends and neighbours of Mr Khan said he was a father-of-four and a director of Rossi's Ices, an ice cream van hire company. 
Councillor Shakeela Lal (Lab, City) said yesterday that Mr Khan had worked in the family business since he was 16, adding that his death had "shocked the community."
Last night, friends and family members gathered in a mosque on Ivanhoe Road, Great Horton, in memory of Mr Khan.
One friend at the mosque described him as a “very good hearted person” who was loved by everyone who knew him.
Friends from Bradford and Leeds were among those who gathered to pay their respects.
A group of young men knew Mr Khan in Leeds as he had an ice cream round in the Harehills area of the city for around 14 years.
“He was a top lad,” said one friend, who asked not to be named. “The whole of Leeds is mourning.”
Another young man attending the mosque said: “We have just prayed for him and offered our condolences. His parents and other family members are here.”
