A Pakistan-based British Al-Qaida militant, who was part of a group plotting Mumbai-type attacks in Europe before his possible killing in a drone attack, may have worked as a police community support officer in the UK, raising fears that Osama bin Laden’s group may be trying to infiltrate the security system here.
Abdul Jabbar, said to be from the Manchester area, was part of a group of between 10 and 20 Islamist extremists linked to recent intelligence warnings about Mumbai-style attacks in Britain, France and Germany, ‘The Sunday Times’ reported. The group is based at militant camps in the tribal areas of North Waziristan in Pakistan.
Community support officers – so-called ‘plastic policemen’ – have fewer powers than ordinary officers, but they have access to police databases that could be invaluable to extremists planning an attack.
