Greater Manchester Police (GMP) officers investigating the murder of Jalal Uddin in Rochdale have made two further arrests.
On Thursday 18 February 2016, around 9pm, police were called by paramedics to a play area at the end of South Street in Wardleworth, Rochdale following reports that a man had been found injured.
Upon arrival, officers found 64-year-old Jalal Uddin with a serious head injury. He was taken to hospital but sadly died a short time later.
On Thursday 28 April 2016, a 28 year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder. A 24-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of arranging funds for terrorism under Section 17 of the Terrorism Act 2000.
A third man, 21, who had previously been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, is in custody for further questioning, along with the previous two. However this brings the total number of individuals arrested in connection with the murder to six.
GMP continues to appeal for more witnesses or anyone with information they believe can assist the police in bringing the culprits to justice.
