Man arrested in Germany over 1993 restaurant 'murder'
Ansar Shah was stabbed to death outside the Armaan Brasserie restaurant in Ayr.
A man has been arrested in Germany on suspicion of murdering a restaurant owner in Scotland almost 25 years ago.
Ansar Shah was stabbed to death outside the Armaan Brasserie restaurant on Seafield Road, Ayr, on October 4, 1993.
A murder investigation was launched to trace the 36-year-old father's killer but the case remained unsolved.
On Thursday, police announced a 51-year-old man had been arrested in Frankfurt under the terms of a European Arrest Warrrant.
Legal proceedings to return the man to Scotland will take place in due course.
Detective chief inspector Mark Bell, of Police Scotland Homicide Governance Review, said: "Police Scotland is committed to pursuing those persons who are allegedly responsible for the gravest of crimes.
"Time and location is no barrier to the efforts and determination of our staff and partners to pursue justice for victims and their loved ones."
