A 19 year man from Harlow was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of murder, attempted murder, arson and burglary by Essex Police investigating the fatal fire in Harlow last October that took the lives of six members of the Shakoor family.
He has been questioned about his involvement in the burglary and fatal fire at Barn Mead, Harlow on October 15, 2012 and has been bailed until June 27, while further enquiries are undertaken.
Police investigating a house fire in Harlow which killed six members of the same family have made a fresh appeal on the BBC's Crimewatch programme. It featured an interview with Dr Abdul Shakoor, who lost his wife and five children in the blaze last year.
The appeal also featured previously unseen footage from the night of the fire, which was recorded by the emergency services.
Essex police say they've received a number of calls after a TV appeal over the house fire that killed a family of six in Harlow.
Dr Sabah Usmani and her five children died after the blaze last month. It's now being treated as murder.
In a fresh appeal on the BBC's crimewatch programme last night, police asked for information about a laptop stolen from the house on the night of the fire. Detectives described the case as tragic and unprecedented for the force.
