The NSW Government has announced a $1 million reward will be offered in return for information about the brutal murder of a grandfather who was bashed inside his Sydney home.

Kalim Saliba, 86, died after allegedly being assaulted by two men who forced their way inside his home in Cherrybrook in April last year.

Police reported that the men entered the couple’s home through the front door while they were watching TV, before threatening and assaulting them.

Mrs Saliba, 83, managed to flee the scene and get help from neighbours, despite also suffering from head injuries sustained during the attack.

Due to extensive head injuries, Mr Saliba died at Westmead Hospital.

NSW Police launched a dedicated Strike Force, named Strike Force McCleery, to find answers about the brutal killing, and have spent months sifting through nearby CCTV footage.

Reaching a standstill in their investigation, the NSW government and police are set to announce a $1 million reward for information into the horror 2020 death.

The reward is for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of any person or persons responsible for Kalim’s death.

The reward sum comes just days after police released images of a grey Audi TT RS, which was seen in the area immediately prior and after the alleged murder.

“Over the last 18 months, investigators have worked tirelessly to locate the Audi, which we believe was used in this heinous crime, and we’re now asking for public assistance in the hope someone may recognise it,” Homicide Squad Commander Detective Superintendent Daniel Doherty said.

“This is a luxury, high-performance car and we believe it would’ve been noticeable to residents and others in the Cherrybrook area late at night when the violent murder of Mr Saliba took place.”

“I urge anyone who recognises this vehicle, or who may have information about its owner or current location, to contact police.”

Kalim’s heartbroken family just want answers and closure over the heartless attack.

“Our family is devastated and continues to grieve, and we are urging anyone with information to contact police to share what they know, whatever that might be,” Mr Saliba’s son, Joseph Saliba said in April.
