Three years on from the murder of Dr Imran Farooq, we look back at the reaction to his death. Damon Green reported one week after the murder, as Dr Farooq's widow made an emotional appeal to help catch his killer. Police are appealing again for anyone with information to come forward.
Detectives investigating the murder of Dr Imran Farooq in Edgware are appealing for anyone with information to come forward three yearson. Dr Farooq died after being stabbed outside his home in Green Lane at 5.30pm on Thursday 16th September 2010.
Police have released a series of CCTV images showing Dr Farooq's movements on the day he was attacked and killed.
A reward of up to £20,000 is being offered for anyone providing information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of those responsible for Dr Farooq's murder.
Dr Farooq, 50, died as a result of multiple stab wounds and blunt trauma to the head. A five and a half inch-bladed kitchen knife and a house brick used in the attack were recovered at the scene.
Detectives from the Met Police Counter Terrorism Command, who are investigating his murder, say they have so far spoken to 4,076 people, reviewed 6,350 documentsand followed up 2,114 lines of inquiry.
It is thought that his murder would have required careful planning and help from other people, some of whom may have provided assistance or information unwittingly.
Detectives believe that Dr Farooq was about to launch a new independent political career before his death and this remains a key line of inquiry in this investigation.
Police know that in July 2010, Dr Farooq set up a Facebook profile and amassed a large number of contacts.
On 24 June this year, officers arrested a 52-year-old man on suspicion of conspiracy to murder at Heathrow after landing at the airport on a flight from Canada. He was taken to a west London police station and later released under bail to return to a police station at a date later in September.
