Jihadist Jailed For Planning Murderous Pride Attack

A jihadist who plotted a knife and gun rampage at last year’s Pride in London has been jailed for a minimum of 25 years.

Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 29, revealed his plans to undercover officers and was arrested three days before last year’s London Pride event.

He was found guilty by a jury in February but reporting restrictions have only now been lifted.

The court heard how he prepared for a potential attack by practising stabbing and beheading techniques, as well as booking shooting range training and trying to get a real gun.

His plans were discovered after the four undercover officers, posing as extremists, befriended him.

Chowdhury’s plans were also said to have included targeting an open-top sightseeing bus, and using a van to kill.

The former Uber driver, from Luton, was cleared in a trial in December 2018 of slashing at police with a samurai sword outside Buckingham Palace the year before.
