CCTV footage shows thugs attack 21-year-old with bars before fatal stabbing

Horrific CCTV footage showed a gang surround a car and attack a 21-year-old man with metal bars before one thug stabs him to death.

Victim Aqib Mazhar was driving with his friend in a Fiat Punto when he was deliberately boxed in and ambushed by the armed men.

They are then seen launching their sickening attack as they beat Aqib with metal bars before one member of the attack delivers a fatal blow.

Aqib desperately tried to escape by climbing from the front passenger seat, but he was stabbed in the back.

CCTV shows the moment police say is the killer, wearing a black hoodie, opened the rear passenger door and attacked Aqib before fleeing.

Aqib was rushed to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham but died a short time later.

The brutal attack took place on the busy Russell Road, Nottingham, at 8.30pm on June 1, 2016.

Mohamud Alasow, 20, Junaid Farrukh, 23, Mohammed Qasim, 26, Qamran Ahmed 23 and Hamza Omar Adam, 19, were jailed for a total of 44 years for manslaughter.

But almost two years since the brutal murder, the killer who landed the fatal blow is still at large.

Detective Chief Inspector Rob Severn, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We have pursued all avenues available to us in order to catch this heartless killer.

"We are asking everyone to watch this video and please contact us if they think they have any information that could lead to identifying him.

"We know that he is probably young, local man, and is probably part of the group who were jailed."

Chief Inspector Donna Lawton added: "This horrific incident highlights the devastating impact that knife crime can have on families and their communities and we really hope that someone comes forward as a result of this appeal.

"Carrying a knife is completely unacceptable and our knife crime team along with every other police officer will keep targeting this issue, removing any weapons they come across and proactively arresting those who possess one."
