The motion, brought by Randolph Charles on behalf of the dead man's family, instructs chief executive Laurie Gould to ask Bedfordshire police to bring in a team from another police force to investigate the six-year-old crime.
According to the motion: 'It has been six years since this crime occurred and to date no-one has been apprehended for it. As a community we have shown a great deal of dignity and patience in letting Bedfordshire police do their job and apprehend those responsible. However, the community is now beginning to lose patience and is demanding action.'
An earlier version of the motion said the community felt the police were uninterested as the 'suspects are not black and it is a black individual who was murdered'.
Bedfordshire police reacted angrily to the calls for a new investigation. Detective superintendent David Tomlinson, the investigating officer, said:
'Myself, the chief constable and the then chief superintendent of Bedford, Ian Harris, spent several hours with Mr Charles explaining the details of this case and the difficulties involved in solving it.
'Mr Charles has given the police information in the past and each item has been dealt with. He knows that. If he has further information other than speculation, rumour or innuendo, then he should bring it to me.'
