linked to the Islamic State terror group during a series of raids
last week. One line of inquiry is that Mr Uddin was targeted because he had made
efforts to turn youngsters away from radical Islam. Mr Uddin, 64, was attacked as he walked through a children’s park last month. He wa
s taken to hospital but died later. Mr Uddin had been to evening prayers at the Bilal Jamia Masjid Mosque. He was on his way to visit a friend when the attack happened close to South Street in the Wardleworth area of the town on February 18. A post mortem examina
tion revealed he died from a head injury. De246天天好彩免费支科大全 tectives investigating the death raided three properties last week, and so far three people have been arrested. But the discovery of material connected
to the so-called Islamic State terror group prompted Greater Manchester Police to call in counter terrorism ex
perts, who are now leading the inquiry. Detectives are now examining the material, which includes digital media thought to have been found on computers or smartphones.
Crime: Police at the scene The investigation is being led by the North West Counter Terrorism Unit assisted by detectives from GMP’s Major Incident Team. A GMP sta
tement said: “The investigation into the murder of Jalal Uddin is now being led by the North West Counter Terrorism Unit in co-operation with officers from the Greater Manchester Police Serious Crime Division. “Whilst the investigation is yet to establish a firm motive for the murder, the NWCTU are better placed to provide the expertise necessary to successfully investigate this crime and any associated offences. “The investigation team continues to remain open as to the reasons why this tragic incident occurred but we are continuously reviewing the evidence to establish whether this killin
g was motivat
ed by hate or religious extremism.” Paying tribute to his father, Mr Uddin’s son said: “He was a selfless man of principle, who always strived to do the right thing. For the community, it is a great loss to lose such a soul. With his extensive knowledge of Islam and his ability to share this knowledge, he captured the hearts of the old and the young, truly making a difference in people’s lives.” Mohammed Hussain Syeedy, 21, of Ramsay Street, Rochdale, has been charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder. A 17-year-old and 21-year-old have also been arrested in connection with the attack.
