Mohammed Ali Ege, 42, fled to India before he could be arrested for the death of 17-year-old Aamir Siddiqi, who was stabbed to death at his parents’ home in an identity change.
Ege was arrested in India in 2013 but escaped from custody in 2017 pending extradition.

Reports in India from 2017 say Ege told police to use a toilet at a train station – then escaped from the window.
South Wales police, who have described Ege as Wales’ most wanted man, said his whereabouts are unknown.
Investigators have released new images of the suspect, taken after his arrest in India, in the hope that this will lead to recent sightings.
A spokeswoman said: ‘We will continue to work with the National Crime Agency and international law enforcement agencies to track down Ege and return him to the UK.

Two other men convicted of Aamir’s murder are still in prison for life.
Aamir’s family is constantly updated and supported by specially trained family liaison officers.
“We urge anyone with information about Mohammed Ali Ege’s whereabouts to get in touch.”
Aamir was murdered in the Roath area of Cardiff on the afternoon of April 11, 2010.
In 2013, Jason Richards and Ben Hope were each sentenced to 40 years in prison at Swansea Crown Court after being found guilty of the murder of Aamir and the attempted murder of his parents.

But the balaclava hitmen accidentally went to the home of the Siddiqi family.
