Detectives are keen to trace teenager over fatal stabbing of butcher

Detectives have released the name of a teenager they would like to speak to in connection with the killing of a butcher in September.

Investigating officers are trying to trace 18-year-old Ehsannullah Mohabat, who has connections in Brent, following the death of Irfan Ahmad.

Mr Ahmad was stabbed to death while at work in Halal Food Direct in Wood Green, North London on September 29 at around 3pm.

The 24-year-old and Mohabat had been arguing shortly before Mr Ahmad was knifed in the chest.

Ahmad is believed to have returned to his home in Enfield before disappearing.

He also has contacts in Enfield, Haringey, Redbridge, Barnet, Waltham Forest, Gloucester, Leicester and Birmingham.

Detectives are also offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of Mr Ahmad’s killer.

DCI Steven Lawrence, who is leading the hunt for the killer, said: “Do you have any information about the murder or the whereabouts of Mr Mohabat?

“It is essential that anyone with information contacts us as soon as possible.”

Mohabat is 5ft 5ins tall and at the time of Mr Ahmad’s death he was wearing a black hooded top with red writing on the front, baggy grey trousers and black trainers.

Anyone who can help should call the incident room on 020 7321 9290 or to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
