#AceNewsReport – Feb.10: Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 28, from Luton, north of London, boasted to undercover detectives about having deceived the jury after being acquitted of wounding police officers outside Queen Elizabeth’s London home in 2017:

British man guilty of plotting Islamist attack on London sights

Chowdhury subsequently tried to obtain a gun, had information on his phone about how to attack people with knives, practiced stabbing and decapitation techniques, and discussed an attack using a van as a weapon: Chowdhury was convicted at London’s Woolwich Crown Court of preparing terrorist acts, possessing information useful to terrorism and disseminating a terrorist publication. He will be sentenced on March 13…………………“It is very clear his intent was to kill and harm as many people as possible and he was prepared to die in doing so,” said Richard Smith, head of the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command. “And, in his view, he felt that would make him a kind of martyr to his cause.”

In 2017, Chowdhury injured two unarmed police officers, who suffered cuts to their hands from his sword when they fought to disarm him near Buckingham Palace as he shouted “Allahu Akbar!” (God is greatest) In his defense, Chowdhury said he had trying to commit suicide, not attack anyone: But he later told undercover officers that he had been trying to carry out an attack and that he had deceived the jury, in part by shaving off his beard.

Police began to investigate Chowdhury in December 2018, within days of his release from prison, when he began posting messages extolling the virtues of becoming a martyr for Islam: Chowdhury purchased a replica Glock gun and unwittingly told undercover officers about his plans to carry out an attack: He spoke, for example, of the Madame Tussauds waxworks museum as a potential location because there were no traffic bollards there, and also considered attacking an open-top tour bus:

Chowdhury’s sister Sneha was convicted of failing to disclose information about his plans to carry out an attack.
