Callow Mount Murder: Latest

A man has been arrested in France in connection with the ongoing murder investigation into the death of Zabihullah Rafiq.

French police arrested the 19-year-old man in Marseille last Friday evening, 1 July, after a Sheffield district judge issued a European Arrest Warrant.

The South Yorkshire Police major investigation team is presently preparing extradition papers in conjunction with the French authorities to have the man repatriated to the United Kingdom where he will attend crown court charged with the murder of Zabi Rafiq.

The extradition process is expected to take between two and three weeks to complete.

Detectives are also trying to trace another man who is known to have left the UK in connection with this investigation.

Zabi Rafiq, 30, was found with a fatal stab injury on Callow Mount, Gleadless Valley, just before 4am on Sunday, 29 May.
