Two still wanted in north Nicosia murder

Manhunt underway for two Pakistani nationals in the case of slain businessman Gokhan Naim


Police in the north are still on a manhunt in the murder of businessman Gokhan Naim last week, with two suspects already in custody and two others believed to have fled south.

Naim, a 52-year-old Turkish Cypriot currency exchange owner, was gunned down last week outside his residence in north Nicosia. According to local media, Naim had been receiving threatening phone calls days before he was shot on Wednesday late afternoon.

According to media in the north, two suspects are in custody while local reports have speculated that two other suspects may have fled south.

Pakistani national Bilal Ahmad was arrested in Famagusta on Saturday. A day earlier, 30-year-old Faiz Ul Hassan was detained and later remanded in custody for three days after police said he was linked to three Pakistani suspects through phone records.

Tanveer Ahmad and Azmad Ali Virk are still wanted by police, while authorities have released their photos to the public.
