Mohammed Ali Ege is still on the run over his alleged involvement in the murder of Aamir Siddiqi. It is two years since Mohammed Ali Ege – accused of having ordered a contract killing on a rival which resulted in two bungling hitmen murdering 17-year-old Aamir Siddiqi – escaped custody in India.
He fled to India before he could be arrested in connection with the murder of Aamir Siddiqi in 2010 and escaped from custody in India in 2017 while awaiting extradition.
Aamir Siddiqi was murdered at his family home while waiting for his Quran teacher to arrive on a Sunday afternoon.
Ben Hope and Jason Richards were found guilty murdering Aamir and the attempted murder of his parents and were sentenced to 40 years in prison each at Swansea Crown Court.
Police believe that it was Ege who paid the pair cash to kill a rival over a collapsed property deal.
On the 9th anniversary of of the brutal murder of the teenager, police have issued a fresh appeal for information on 41-year-old Ege’s whereabouts. Police believe the answers are in Cardiff.
He had spent more than five years in custody in India and was awaiting extradition over his alleged involvement with the murder of Aamir, who was stabbed to death at his home in Ninian Road, Roath, in April 2010. He fled police in India after escaping through a train station toilet window.
Police believes he is being “supported financially” from someone in the Cardiff area since he managed to flee the authorities in 2017.
