A woman who had al-Qaida terrorist material in her mobile phone was jailed for a year on Thursday. Ruksana Begum, 22, who has a first-class accountancy degree, had been married for a month when anti-terrorist officers raided an address where she was staying in east London in July.
The Old Bailey heard today that her brothers, Gurukanth Desai and Abdul Miah, pleaded guilty to a plot to blow up the Stock Exchange and were sentenced this year to 12 and 16 years jail in February. Mohammed Chowdhury, who was jailed for 13 years for the same December 2010 plot, asked to marry her but she had never met him. She married in June and moved to London with her new husband.
