Police release CCTV images of murder suspect in Leicester

Police have released images of a murder suspect who was caught on CCTV wearing a full-body burka and wheeling a shopping trolley.

The grainy pictures show a person pulling a trolley into Vama Collections on Belgrave Road in Leicester just minutes after Mr Jogiya had locked up for the night and left.

Detective Chief Inspector David Swift-Rollinson, from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU) said: ‘Whoever that is seen on CCTV entering the jewellers a short while after Mr Jogiya had locked up and left, is clearly someone I need to identify quickly.

‘The fact that they were pulling a shopping trolley and wearing a burka may have stood out to others in the area, and I’d ask people to cast their minds back and try to remember whether they saw that person.’ 

Three men were arrested today on suspicion of kidnapping and murdering an elderly businessman whose body was dumped on a country lane after a botched jewellery raid.

Ramniklal Jogiya, 74, was abducted and killed after locking up his jewellery shop on Wednesday night.
