The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been remanded in custody and is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates' Court on Wednesday 13 January.

Just after 9pm on Friday 8 January, the 53-year-old Marple Spice restaurant owner, also known as Nowab Miah, was struck by his own car following a robbery.

He was taken to hospital where he sadly died on Sunday 10 January 2021.

Detective chief inspector Liam Boden of Greater Manchester Police's major incident team said: "As our investigation continues I would like to pay tribute to Mohammed's family, who have shown such admirable bravery and dignity this week during the most tragic of circumstances imaginable.

"They and the local community have responded stoically in the last few days and we are doing all we can to support Mohammed's loved ones with specialist officers at this awful time.

"Our priority is to ensure they get the answers they are undoubtedly owed and we urge anyone with information or footage relating to this incident to submit to our portal or to contact us via phone so we can ensure we ascertain the full details of this incident."
