New Delhi, Dec 1: Usman Khan, the convicted terrorist who stabbed two people to death in a terror attack at the London Bridge earlier this week, had plans to carry out terror attacks in Kashmir, reveals a 2012 judgement pronounced by a British court over his role in the 1990 London Stock Exchange bombing.
Eight years prior to the incident on the London Bridge which brought the city to a standstill, British national Usman Khan, who is believed to have spent parts of his late teens in Pakistan, had been sentenced to sixteen years in prison in 2012 for his role in the London Stock Exchange bombing, but was released in December 2018.
At the time of his sentencing in 2012, a British judge had warned that "Usman Khan and Nazan Hussain attended Madrassa and were themselves keen to perform acts of terrorism in Kashmir. When they and others, who had been recruited and trained in the Madrassa and had experience in Kashmir, they may return to the UK and perform acts of violent terrorism here." "The long, monitored, discussions of Usman Khan about the madrassa and his attitudes towards it and terrorism are highly eloquent of the seriousness of their purpose," the judgement read.
