Police investigating the fatal shooting of a shop owner outside his store have doubled their reward for information and issued an e-fit of a suspect.

Greater Manchester Police is now offering £50,000 for information about the killing of Pragaret "Charlie" Singh outside Manchester Food Traders in Openshaw on 31 October 2014.

Three men were arrested on suspicion of murder but later released.

A bag containing £23,000 was also taken from the shop and never recovered.

Two years after Mr Singh's death, detectives have also reissued an e-fit of a man they want to trace.

They believe several men arrived in a light-coloured Seat Leon and confronted Mr Singh before shooting him.

They are then thought to have driven along Park House Street, towards Alan Turing Way.

Det Ch Insp 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."
