Place of Birth: London, United Kingdom;
Shahan Choudhury is a former suspect in a gang murder has fled to Syria – after being radicalised in what is allegedly one of Britain’s most secure prisons.
Choudhury worked as Islamic State gravedigger who buried scores of bloodied dead bodies as the Syrian town of Baghouz became a “slaughterhouse”.
He is accused of using social media to urge other British Muslims to carry out terror attacks in the UK and became an Islamic State gravedigger.
His family say he was ‘brainwashed’ after spending 18 months on remand in HMP Belmarsh for allegedly taking part in the stabbing of a 17-year-old.
He has been joined in Syria by his wife and three children, including a baby. The family’s escape may have been funded by housing benefit payments.
Choudhury’s wife Mehak is alleged to have traveled to Syria in early 2016, a few months after her husband.
The family’s landlady discovered that Mehak had received a monthly housing benefit payment of £1,000 – which she’d failed to pass on as rent.
Shahan Choudhury first came to the police’s attention when he was charged with being part of a gang who stabbed a 17-year-old hospital worker to death over an alleged £15 drug debt.
He was acquitted in 2007 but his family believe he was ‘brainwashed’ by Islamic extremists at HMP Belmarsh.
