DETECTIVES are appealing for an anonymous caller to contact them again about the murder in Ashford of 24-year-old Shankar Kathirgamanathan.

Police believe that the person, or possibly two people, who made telephone calls on Friday, May 7, and Sunday, May 9, could hold vital information.

Police spokesman Anne McCarthy said: “Officers are keen to make contact again with the caller or callers as they believe they may have information that is important to their investigation.

“The officers are keen to emphasise that any calls made to the police will be treated strictly in confidence.”

Mr Kathirgamanathan, a Sri Lankan man who worked in a KFC takeaway in Ashford and lived at Cleves Way, South Ashford, was attacked near the Victoria Road footbridge on April 22. He died in hospital on Thursday, May 6.

It has emerged that Mr Kathirgamanathan had been due to marry his fiancee in Ashford next week.
