London, Nov 29 (ANI): Two suspects held on suspicion of stabbing a Brit-Indian shopkeeper to death as his daughter watched on the store's CCTV system, have been questioned today by detectives.

The 48-year-old shopkeeper, Suppiah Tharmaseelan, was pronounced dead at his convenience store in Birmingham on Saturday night after being found with stab wounds following the attack.

Police had arrested a man and a woman, both in their 20s, yesterday morning on suspicion of his murder.

The Independent quoted a spokeswoman for West Midlands Police as saying that detectives were hunting for a number of suspects seen running from the College Road corner shop after the attack.

"Four men were seen running from the shop and there are two people in custody so we are still looking for suspects and appealing for information," she added.

Abid Hussain, owner of a takeaway store on the same street, said that the shopkeeper's daughter informed police after witnessing the horrible sight on CCTV camera.

"I spoke to a relative of his wife outside the shop this morning and he told me the daughter was watching the CCTV upstairs and she saw it all happening. I heard she was the one who called police. I can't imagine how she must feel, and his sons," he added.

Hussain also claimed he had been told by police that the victim was stabbed three times and died instantly. (ANI)
