Police release new pictures of suspect who fled to India after murder of Aamir Siddiqi, 17 in 2010

New images have been released by police of a suspect being hunted in connection with the murder of a teenager in Cardiff in 2010.

Mohammed Ali Ege, 42, fled to India before he could be arrested over the death of 17-year-old Aamir Siddiqi, who was stabbed at his family home in a mistaken identity attack. 

Ege was arrested in India in 2013 but escaped from custody in 2017 while awaiting extradition.

Reports in India from 2017 say Ege told police he needed to use a toilet at a train station - and then escaped out of the window. 

South Wales Police, who have described Ege as Wales's most wanted man, said his whereabouts remain unknown.

Detectives have released new images of the suspect, taken following his arrest in India, in the hope it will lead to recent sightings being reported.

A spokeswoman said: 'We continue to work with the National Crime Agency and international law enforcement agencies to trace 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.'

Aamir was killed in the Roath area of Cardiff on the afternoon of April 11 2010.

In 2013 Jason Richards and Ben Hope were sentenced to 40 years in prison each at Swansea Crown Court after being found guilty of Aamir's murder and the attempted murder of his parents.

They had each been paid £1,000 in ‘blood money’ to kill a middle-aged man who owed money to a businessman.

But the balaclava-wearing assassins went to the Siddiqi family home by mistake.
