Police have warned the public to avoid the man wanted over the double murder of a mother and daughter in Solihull. Janbaz Tarin, 21, is being sought over the stabbings of his ex-partner, Raneem Oudeh, 22, and her mother, Khaola Saleem, 49.
West Midlands Police said: “Officers from across the force have been following a number of lines of inquiry to trace Tarin, but he has not yet been arrested.”
Their relatives said in a statement: “Our family is devastated with the loss of our loved ones.”
Det Insp Caroline Corfield said:
My message to Tarin would be that it’s vitally important that we get to speak to you as soon as possible, so please do the right thing and let us know where you are. Through a sense of misguided loyalty you did this.
We’ve been working flat out to apprehend Tarin since the early hours of this morning, following up a number of lines of inquiry,” she said.
As we have so far not been able to locate Tarin, I’m now asking for the public’s help in tracing him.”
Neighbours living in the quiet residential road reported being woken up by “a lot of screaming and shouting” and a man driving away in a van.
Ch Supt Bas Javid, Solihull policing commander, said: “Tragedies like this are incredibly rare, but that does not do anything to diminish the awful nature of what has happened in Solihull today.
I’m sure the thoughts of everyone in the borough and beyond will be with the family and friends of Raneem and Khaola.”
