Indian arrested in Germany for decades-old murder


BERLIN – An Indian man wanted for a murder in Scotland 24 years ago has been arrested at Frankfurt airport, German and Scottish police said.

The 51-year-old suspect had just arrived in Frankfurt from New Delhi on Thursday when he was arrested for the murder of Ansar Shah in southwest Scotland in 1993.

Shah, 36, was stabbed to death in a car park, according to British media.

“It is anticipated that proceedings to return the man to Scottish jurisdiction will take place in due course,” Scottish police said in a statement.
