Student flats murder: Victim named as manhunt for Maher Maaroufe continues

A young woman murdered at student flats in central London has been named by police as Sabita Thanwani.

The 19-year-old was found with injuries at Arbour House – accommodation for students in Clerkenwell, on Saturday.

Police are urgently looking for 22-year-old Maher Maaroufe, a Tunisian national of no fixed address, who is known to have been in a relationship with Ms Thanwani.

Although the body has not been formally identified, “Sabita’s family have been informed and will be supported by specialist officers”, Scotland Yard said.

Detectives are appealing for help to trace 22-year-old Maher Maaroufe

DCI Linda Bradley said: “I am reiterating our urgent appeal for information to trace 22-year-old Maher Maaroufe. He has links across London, particularly in the Marble Arch, Edgware Road, and Lewisham areas. He is also known to travel to Cambridgeshire.

“One of the images we released shows Maaroufe with dark hair and a moustache and beard. He has now shaved his head, and has little facial hair.

“Maaroufe had been in a relationship with Sabita but he was not a student. He is a Tunisian national of no fixed address.

“Officers are making enquiries to trace those who had contact with him, but I would ask anyone who knew him who has yet to speak with police to please get in touch. I would again ask the public not to approach him if they see him, but call 999.

“I am also appealing, once again, for Maher Maaroufe to attend a police station immediately. Maher – I am making this appeal directly to you: if you see this, please go to the nearest police station. It is important that we speak with you.”
