Police have arrested a teenager and a young man on suspicion of murdering Jalal Uddin in Rochdale .
The former imam, 64, died from a head injury after he was found in a playground in the Wardleworth area of the town last week.
A 21-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy have now been detained on suspicion of murder in connection with Mr Uddin’s death.
They were held at an address on Ramsay Street in Rochdale, police said . A Vauxhall Astra was also seized as part of the investigation. Both suspects remain in custody for questioning.
It’s believed Mr Uddin was attacked shortly before 9pm last Thursday, February 18. He was taken to hospital but passed away a short time later.....
“We are continuing to appeal for anyone with information to come forward and following extensive analysis of CCTV, we now know that Jalal walked into the park from the South Street entrance at 8.41pm before he was then found injured seven minutes later by a member of the public.
"We are keen to speak to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the South Street area around this time, no matter how big or small you believe it may be.”
