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.
