Tonight, Wednesday, 8 September, detectives are at the scene of the murder on Elmfield Way/Harrow Road, appealing for anyone who can help to get in touch. They will be distributing leaflets to the public on the street and anyone with information can either speak directly to officers or get in touch online or by phone.
Detective Chief Inspector Vicky Tunstall, said: “Ahmed’s murder took place close to Harrow Road which is a busy arterial road through west London. Do you remember driving through Harrow Road on the night of the murder? Did you see a blue Mazda 2 GT Sport, with a registration of LD17 CXS, leaving the area at speed at around half-past midnight?
“The passing of a year since Ahmed’s death has been torture for his loved ones, but I am hoping that, during these long months, someone will have been told something about the events of that night, or may have heard something about who was responsible, and I urge anyone who has information to take the next step and come forward and speak to us. You may even be eligible for a substantial reward for your assistance.”
