Suspect In Journalist Gauri Lankesh Murder, KT Naveen Kumar, Arrested

  Suspect In Journalist Gauri Lankesh Murder, KT Naveen Kumar, Arrested Suspect In Journalist Gauri Lankesh Murder, KT Naveen Kumar, ArrestedNaveen Kumar, reported to be in his late thirties, has been widely described as a person with links to right-wing groups. BJP leader Shobha Karandlaje had recently accused the Siddaramaiah government of trying to pin the blame on a "Hindu youth". It was seen as a reference to Naveen Kumar.

On 15 September 2017, at around 8:20 am BST (07:20 UTC), an explosion occurred on a District line train at Parsons Green Underground station, in London, England.

UK . World. Education. The Parsons Green bombing suspect said it was his " duty to hate Britain" before he planted a bomb on a rush-hour District line train, a court heard.

After arriving in the UK in 2015, Hassan attended Brooklands College in Weybridge, Surrey, and moved in with a foster family in Sunbury.

Jurors were told his teacher and mentor Katie Cable became concerned about his behaviour despite him being named student of the year in June last year.

She told the court she alerted Prevent after she saw a WhatsApp message on the 18-year-old's phone in August 2016, saying: "IS (Islamic State) has accepted your donation."

Ms Cable said Hassan blamed America for the deaths of his parents in Iraq and said: "It's my duty to hate Britain."

Vidic: Man Utd could win the Champions League

  Vidic: Man Utd could win the Champions League The former Red Devils captain believes Jose Mourinho's men are equipped to succeed in Europe ."It's Man United. I know the Premier League is bigger, but I think the Champions League could happen," Vidic said via ESPN."When the season started, I said that I thought United had more chance to win the Champions League than the Premier League because the players they signed didn't have the time to fit in."Also, Mourinho is a tactical coach, knows Europe very well. He knows there are going to be scrappy games and how to get through them."That's my belief.

The bomb partially exploded in a London Underground train while at Parsons Green tube station in west London on September 15 last year. More. "It's my duty to hate Britain," she said he had told her.

"I believe Ahmed said his father was blown up and his mother had been shot," Ms Cable said.

She said he talked about Tony Blair and expressed his "anger" at the situation in Iraq.

The court heard he told her "the British" were responsible for his parents' deaths.

Ms Cable said that by September 2017, she had become "really concerned about his mental state".

Barnardo's workers also gave evidence to the court on Monday.

Youseff Habibi, from the charity, told jurors the defendant told him his father was a taxi driver who had gone to work one morning when "a bomb fell on him and he died".

He said Hassan's mother had died when he was much younger and that he blamed America for her death, too.

The court heard how another Barnardo's worker, Zoe Spencer, had accompanied Hassan to an immigration interview in January 2016.

She said when he was asked if he had been involved with terrorist groups such as IS, he said: "Yes, I was recruited by ISIS for three months."

Ms Spencer said she stopped the interview as she felt Hassan did not understand the question. During a second interview with an interpreter, Hassan said he was "forced" to go with IS and denied being sent to Europe to work for them.

She also told the court she saw the teenager looking at a picture of people in balaclavas with guns and the black IS flag about a week later.

Hassan denies attempted murder and using the chemical compound TATP to cause an explosion that was likely to endanger life.

The trial continues.
