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 the death of Dr Imran Farooq.

The Met Police’s terrorism command detectives, who are investigating the crime, believe Dr Farooq had been poised to renew his political career.

Dr Farooq was on his was home from work when he was attacked outside his home in Green Lane, Edgware, shortly before 5.30pm on Thursday, September 16 2010.

A post-mortem gave his cause of death as multiple stab wounds and blunt trauma to the head, and police found a five and a half inch blade and a house brick used in the attack at the scene.

As the second anniversary of his death approaches officers want to speak to anyone who has information, or who was in contact with Dr Farooq over his political ambitions.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “Detectives from the Met Police Counter Terrorism Command remain committed to finding those responsible.

“They believe his murder would have required careful planning and would have required help from other people, some of whom may have provided assistance or information unwittingly.”

Police want to speak to anyone who was asked for information about Dr Farooq and his routine, or who was asked to help buy items such as knives similar to those used in the murder, or mobile phones around the time of the attack.

Officers also want to speak to anyone who may have been asked to drive people around the Green Lane area in the days before the murder, or who may have witnessed the suspects leaving the scene.

Anyone who can help call the police incident room on 0208 721 3784 or email SO15Mailbox-.DrFarooqMurder@met.police.uk, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
