The London police arrested a 34-year-old man on suspicion of the murder of Dr Imran Farooq, said a press release posted on the Metropolitan Police website on Thursday.

The man was also arrested on suspicion of robbery in October 2009 at a residential address in Camden. He has been taken to a north London police station where he will be interviewed by detectives.

Detectives believe that there are other people who may hold vital information about the attack and thus continue to urge to come forward. They are still trying to trace two men who are wanted in connection with the incident.

Officers previously issued an e-fit of one of the men. The man is of Asian appearance, aged to be in his late 20s or early 30s, with a height of around 5 feet 5inches. He is believed to be of a slim build, with piercing eyes, a pointed, pale-skinned face, short black/dark coloured hair, and a goatee-style beard. He was wearing a dark coloured baseball-style cap.

The second man is also Asian. He is aged to be in his 30s, with a stocky build and a height of around 5 feet 10 inches, with short black hair.

Farooq, aged 50, was on his way home from work when he was attacked in Green Lane, on Thursday, September 16.

Umer | 11 years ago | Reply In fact, British Justice System is very dynamic and has a great reputation since generation to generation. I am very optimistic that they will catch the criminals who were responsible to kill Dr Imran Farooq. I remember like yesterday that Karachi used to be a very peaceful city, but after the emergence of different ethnic and political groups during the dictatorship of Prsident Zia-ul-Haque, its become a killing field. A constant wave of innocent killings and the destruction of moveable and immoveable property. A place of grief, sorrow, frustration and the silent blood-tears. A place of injustice, intimidation, threats and crises. A place, where moral and ethical values have been vanished. A place, where police behaving like a hungry vultures. A place, where these so called 'Islamist' or 'Mullas' have been killing innocent women, children and the elders in the name of Islam (As Far As My Knowledge Is Concerned, There Is No Room For Mullaism In Islam). The entire responsibility goes to those corrupt and ill-repute politicians, religious leaders and the rulars. They are just like blood-sucking creatures who had have been drinking and eating flesh of the general public since Pakistan's creation in 1947. May God Almighty Shower His Blessings on the People of Pakistan, Ameen. With kind regards Umer
