Detectives have named a man they want to speak to over the stabbing and a £5,000 reward for information on his whereabouts has been offered by Crimestoppers.

Ahmed Farrah, 29, is believed to hold vital information about the killing.

Farrah, who is known as Reggie and has links to Broomhall, is said to know he is wanted by the police and is actively evading arrest.

A police warning has been issued that anyone found shielding him faces prosecution.

Over Christmas Kavan’s family issued an emotional appeal for information to help detectives solve the case.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
