POLICE have released CCTV footage of missing restaurant worker Mahmood Ahmad who is believed to have been kidnapped.
This CCTV image was taken from the video camera at Whitechapel’s Lahore Kebab House at Umberston Street in London’s East End just hours before he disappeared.
Detectives believe Mahmood was kidnapped outside his home in Watford, Herts, in the early hours of the next day, March 7.
An incident room was set up by Beds & Herts Major Crime unit when his severed thumb was discovered in East London three days later at Ilford.
