Two men have been arrested in connection with the death of Ansar Shah in Ayr in 1993. Another man, Mr Singh, was arrested previously for the crime and has appeared in Court charged with the murder. He pled not guilty. Ansar was attacked and this led to his death in a public car back almost 25 years ago.

The three men lived in France, London and one still in Ayr when they were arrested. Police worked on the crime previously but were never able to piece the parts together. The new operation has been led by Police Scotland’s homicide governance and review team. A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Enquiries are ongoing.”
