Aamir Siddiqi murder: Killing is ‘open wound’ 10 years on

“It was a sunny day. I was in this incredibly great mood. Then my mum phoned me and that call changed my whole world.”

Miriam Siddiqi recalls the horror of 11 April 2010, the day her 17-year-old little brother Aamir was murdered at home in front of their parents.

His killers were two hit men who went to the wrong address in Roath, Cardiff.

A decade on, police have appealed for information about “Wales’ most-wanted man” in connection with the murder.

A third man, Mohammed Ali Ege, 42, from Cardiff, was arrested in India in 2011 on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder but escaped custody before he could be extradited.

The hunt for him continues.

South Wales Police said Mr Ege has become one of “Europe’s most wanted fugitives” and his face appears on the Europol website as law enforcement agencies from around the world try to return him to the UK.

“You relive the day it happened and, honestly, it doesn’t feel like 10 years ago to us,” said Miriam, 37.
