Detectives searching for Wales’ most wanted man – Mohammed Ali Ege – are following up new lines of enquiry as the hunt for him continues.
Information has been received as resulted of a recent public appeal and South Wales Police wishes to thank those individuals who have taken the time to make contact.
We are still appealing for information.
Sunday, April 11 marked the 11th anniversary of the murder of Aamir Siddiqi in Cardiff.
17-year-old Aamir was brutally murdered at his family home in Roath on the afternoon of Sunday, April 11, 2010 while waiting for his Quran teacher.
One man, Wales’ most wanted man, remains wanted in connection with his murder – Mohammed Ali Ege, from Riverside, Cardiff.
Ege, now 43, fled to India before he could be arrested in connection with Aamir’s murder.
In 2013 he was arrested in India but in 2017, while awaiting extradition, he escaped from Indian custody.
Four years on, his current whereabouts remain unknown.
Earlier this week, detectives leading the hunt released new images of Ege which were taken following his arrest in India in 2013 in the hope it would lead to any recent sightings being reported to police.
The release of the images has generated interested and resulted in new lines of enquiry which are being followed up by the investigation team.
We continue to work with the National Crime Agency and international law enforcement agencies to trace the Ege and return him to the UK.
Two other men convicted of Aamir’s murder continue to serve life sentences in prison.
Aamir’s family continue to be updated and supported by specially-trained family liaison officers.
We urge anyone with information about the whereabouts of Mohammed Ali Ege to get in touch.
