The sister of a man who was murdered in Sheffield on New Year’s Eve has paid tribute to a ‘loving, caring brother’.

Tributes have been paid to Zabair Hussain, 41, who was found with multiple injuries to his head and body in Staniforth Road, Darnall, at around 11.20pm on New Year’s Eve.

His sister, Lubby Hussain, said her heart has been ‘broken and torn’ by the tragedy.

Paying tribute from the whole family, she said: “A tribute, to our beautiful Brother and uncle Zabair.

“He was a very loving, caring brother, uncle and person, with a big heart.

“He became a lost soul since our mum died in 1994. And even then, he was the one looking after our family, and didn’t share his pain, kept strong all the time.

“Ever since our younger brother Bobby, passed away February 1, 2015, it threw Zab completely.

“Our Zab’s life has been taken away, not by God but by coward thugs. Our hearts are broken and torn, what its like to lose you, no one will ever now.

“I have faith in Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and faith in the team who are dealing with the investigation. 
“Justice will be done, for the pain they put our beautiful brother through. Zabair and Bobby both.

“We miss you with all the pieces of our heart, and what’s left of our soul.

“We miss you, like the deserts miss the rain. Inshallah we will meet again. Love you forever and always, your family.”

Police are urging anyone with information to call 101.
