Was an Indian among 12 held for UK terror plot - Times of India

Conflicting reports come out over whether a man of Indian origin, one of the 12 men arrested in what is being called the Christmas bomb blitz plot, was part of the London terror plot. One of the men, called Gurukanth Desai, is believed to be of Indian origin according to some reports, but others are calling him a Bangladeshi.

The name, investigators believe, was adopted by the man from the lead character of an Indian Hindi movie. Desai is currently in police custody facing terror charges.

Desai, 28, and his accomplices were picked up after months of monitoring by the police and intelligence agencies and have been charged with conspiracy to strike prominent targets in London.

Among those charged are Gurukanth Desai, Omar Sharif Latif and Abdul Malik Miah from Cardiff, while Mohammed Moksudur Rahman Chowdhury and Shah Mohammed Lutfar Rahman have been picked up from London. Nazam Hussain, Usman Khan, Mohibur Rahman and Abul Bosher Mohammed Shahjahan were held from Stoke-on-Trent.

The nine men remanded to police custody are accused of an alleged terror plot to blow up the London Stock Exchange and the American Embassy, and planning a series of parcel bombs directed at prominent figures.

Billy Corrigan of West Midland police press office told Times Now that there is substantial evidence against the nine terror suspects.
