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.
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.
