Police investigating the unsolved murder of father of three (Prageret) Charlie Singh who was mercilessly gunned down in an Openshaw Street, think a distinctive bag could be the clue that may net his killers.

The bag that contained £23 000 in cash was stolen at the scene as Shopkeeper Charlie lay dying in the street.

The black bag  is quite distinctive and has not yet been recovered and even if the killers have destroyed the bag, somebody is likely to have seen them with it at some time before killers had a chance to distance themselves from it.

Police are now so intent on catching Charlie’s killers that they have upped the reward money available for information leading to their capture from £25,000 to £50,000.

The second anniversary of the brutal killing that left three children fatherless was on Monday and police are marking the occasion by asking people to look into their consciences and dig deep into their memories

Police are also reminding people how the 37-year-olds life was taken and that Charlie’s family need answers and some form of closure.

They say around 6.10pm on Friday 31 October 2014, police were called to Manchester Food Traders, off Wood Street in Openshaw, following reports that a man had been shot.

Detectives investigating the murder believe Charlie’s killers arrived at the murder scene, in a light-coloured Seat Leon and after confronting and shooting Charlie, they got back into the car and drove along Park House Street, towards Alan Turing Way.

Three men aged 32, 30 and 28 were arrested in connection with the murder but, following extensive enquiries, they were released with no further action.

Detectives have also released an E-FIT of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the murder.

The killer, has been described as black, over 6ft tall and had spiky knotted hair and was not wearing a mask when he murdered Charlie in front of his 14-year-old nephew.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Richard Eales, said: “It has been two whole years since Charlie was tragically killed and his family still
do not have any answers.

“Somebody out there knows who took Charlie’s life. I am urging anyone with any information, no matter how insignificant they think it may be, to contact us as soon as possible. That piece of information could be the evidence we need to bring Charlie’s killer to Justice.

“£50,000 is a considerable amount of money and I’m hoping that by offering the reward, it will encourage people to come forward.

“In two years, allegiances may have changed and people may now feel able to come forward and speak to us. I want to assure these people there are processes in place to help us support them to do that.”
