Police have released new images 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.

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.

“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.
