Kamran Khan, 28, died at the Northern General Hospital after being found outside a property on Club Garden Road, Sharrow, with serious injuries.

“He passed away during the early hours of the morning.”

A post-mortem examination revealed he died as a result of a stab wound to the chest.

The inquest heard Kamran was born in Sheffield in August 1992 and was single and unemployed at the time of his death.

Kamran’s aunt and sister attended the hearing.

The inquest has been adjourned until March 23, 2021 to allow criminal proceedings into his death to take place.

Mrs Rawden said it could be postponed again until those proceedings finish.

A coroner will then decide whether an inquest needs to be held as details of Kamran’s death may emerge during a potential criminal trial.

Thamraze Khan, 30, of Club Garden Road, has been charged with murder in relation to the death.

He is due to appear at Sheffield Crown Court today.

Mrs Rawden said she was ‘truly sorry’ to Kamran’s family for their loss.
