POLICE hunting for a shopkeeper's killer hope a television appeal will provide them with vital information.
Dad-of-three Javaid Ali was repeatedly stabbed in his own store but despite appeals from his family and the offer of a substantial cash reward the person responsible is still at large.
Tonight Javaid's murder will feature on BBC1's Crimewatch programme, at 9pm.
Hopefully the show will encourage people to get in touch and provide vital clues to help catch the killer.
Javaid, 48, died in hospital two weeks after the brutal attack in the Sunshine Grocers in Green Road, Paisley, on June 15.
Tonight officers from Strathclyde Police will take part in the television programme.
Detectives are keen to speak to anyone who was in the Green Road area, and specifically anyone who was at the shop, on the day of the murder.
Earlier this month Crimestoppers, the Association of Convenience Stores and the Scottish Grocers' Federation offered up a £50,000 reward for crucial information leading to the arrest and conviction of those behind the murder.
Detective Chief Inspector Duncan Sloan said: "Javaid was an exceptionally hard-working man who was an integral part of his community.
"I am now asking the local community to help and come forward with information to find the person responsible for his murder.
"I would also remind everyone that there is a £50,000 reward for information which brings the person who robbed the Ali family of their father to justice.
"Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 0141 435 1017.
"Alternatively please get in touch with Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously"
