A man suspected of the murder of a curry delivery driver who was attacked with meat cleavers has been detained in Bangladesh, Scotland Yard has confirmed.
Mohiuddin Bablu, 36, is accused of being involved in the death of Abdul Samad, 25, who was killed in Islington, north London, in May 1997.
Mr Samad was working for the takeaway Curry-in-a-Hurry, and had responded to a hoax order to take food to an address in Alwyne Road.
He was attacked with knives and meat cleavers, and managed to run into nearby Alwyne Villas, where he was injured again with weapons including a baseball bat.
Mr Samad was taken to hospital but died the following day.
A Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed that a 36-year-old man had been detained in Bangladesh in connection with the murder, and that Met officers are accompanying him back to the UK.
