A £20,000 reward is being offered for anonymous information relating to the murder of Raju Modhwadia who was stabbed to death on a Leicester street.
Raju Modhwadia, who was 41 years old and also known as Kara Muru, was found with stab wounds on Evington Road, Stoneygate, Leicester in the early hours of Monday, 27 December last year.
A short while before, Mr Modhwadia had been involved in a fight on Hamilton Street, in Leicester, near to the junction with St Albans Road.
It is believed that there are people who witnessed what happened.
The charity Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £20,000 for anonymous information relating to the murder.
Back in May, five men were found not guilty of the crime, after the case was dismissed at Leicester Crown Court.
A review of the investigation by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) had found insufficient evidence to proceed, police said.
In an appeal, Lydia Patsalides, Crimestoppers East Midlands Regional Manager, said: “We urge anyone with information to speak to our charity 100% anonymously. By coming forward, you could make a real difference in helping to get justice for Raju, whose life was so tragically cut short.
“No amount of information is too small to tell us – were you at home on Boxing Day evening on Sunday 26 December 2021, close to where Raju was found? Did you hear or see anything suspicious? It is not too late to tell us what you know, and you could be eligible for a reward.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers on freephone 0800 555 111, or fill in a form on the charity’s website’s at: https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information
Crime information can be given in up to 140 different languages, including Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati and Somali.
