Two men, aged 36 and 37, are in custody charged with Aamir's murder and the attempted murder of his parents.

Aamir's sister Nishat Siddiqi also appealed for help from the Asian community in tracing Mohammed Ali Ege.

She said: "An important element of the on-going investigation is the assistance which can be provided by our community to the police.

"It will be of tremendous value if we can trace the suspect (Mohammed Ali Ege) who is required by the police for their investigation.

Miss Siddiqi added: "If you have any piece of information about them, please pass it onto the police without delay.

"For the sake of justice and to maintain peace and security in our society, the perpetrators involved in this crime must be brought to justice as soon as possible,

She said the four months since her brother's murder have been "an enormously difficult time for us as a family".

She also praised the "tremendous support" that the family has received from friends, members of the Cardiff community, and the police who she said have "worked tirelessly".
