A murder investigation has been launched over a knife attack in London. The incident, according to police, is not being considered as terrorism related.

A 20-year-old man has been killed and two others have been injured in a stabbing at Parsons Green station in London on Monday evening. The incident happened as the station was busy with commuters coming back home from work. Emergency services were on the scene and the area was cordoned off by police.

​”We treated three patients at the scene. We have taken two patients to hospital as a priority. Sadly one patient died at the scene,” a London Ambulance Service spokesperson told The Telegraph.

Scotland Yard said that a murder investigation had been launched and one of the injured had been arrested. He was taken to hospital and remains in custody. Police also said that the incident is not being investigated as a terrorist act.

​Last month, 30 people were injured at Parsons Green station after a bomb was detonated on a train. The incident is being investigated as a terrorist attack. Several arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
