They would like to speak to 29-year-old Moshin Ali Syed and 34-year-old Muhammad Kashif Khan Kamran, both of whom are Pakistani nationals who left the UK on the night of Dr Farooq's murder.

In September 2010, Dr Farooq was attacked outside his home in Green Lane, Edgware. He died from multiple stab wounds and blunt trauma to the head. A kitchen knife and a house brick used in the attack were found at the scene. 

At the time, Dr Farooq was a leading member of one of Pakistan's major political parties, MQM. His death caused riots in Karachi.

The investigation team knows that both Kamran and Syed were staying in the Stanmore area prior to the murder, having both registered to study at a college in East London after entering the UK on student visas.

The two men are now believed to be in Pakistan.

A 52-year-old man arrested in June 2013, on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, remains on police bail pending further enquiries. 

Anyone who can assist should call the police incident room on +44 (0)20 7230 2717.
