Aamir Siddiqi murder: investigation to trace Mohammed Ali Ege continues
Main article content
South Wales Police continues to work with the National Crime Agency and international law enforcement agencies to trace Mohammed Ali Ege and return him to the UK.
He is wanted in connection with the murder of 17-year-old Aamir Siddiqi who died at his home in Ninian Road, Roath on 11th April 2010 having suffered multiple stab wounds.
Although two men have been convicted of his murder, South Wales Police remains as committed as ever to tracing and arresting Ege.
Ege, now 44, 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.
From our ongoing investigation to trace him we know that he has travelled.
His current whereabouts remain unknown but if and when Mohammed Ali Ege is arrested anywhere in the world, current arrangements are in place to ensure that South Wales Police would be notified immediately.
Detective Inspector Stuart Wales, of the South Wales Police Major Crime Investigations Team, said: “Aamir was undoubtedly a very promising young man, full of huge amounts of potential.
“Nearly 12 years may have passed but until Mohammed Ali Ege is located and brought back to the UK, this remains a live and priority investigation for South Wales Police.
“There are numerous appeals for information in relation to Mohammed Ali Ege on Interpol, the Major Investigation Public Portal, Crimestoppers, the South Wales Police website and many local, national and international media reports.
“He must be constantly looking over his shoulder and our determination to resolve this matter has never diminished.
“We would ask anyone who has information about his whereabouts to please get in touch – for Aamir’s family who have always acted with such dignity throughout.
“We have recently updated Aamir’s family who we continue to support, and they have repeated their ongoing trust and confidence in South Wales Police.
“They are supported by a family liaison officer and we continue to communicate with them in line with their wishes.”
We urge anyone with information about the whereabouts of Mohammed Ali Ege to get in touch by one of the following means:
