Bradford husband and wife jailed for terrorism offences after he tried to join IS in Syria

A HUSBAND and wife from Bradford have been jailed on terrorism charges after he made plans to travel to Syria to join IS.
Leeds Crown Court today heard Ijaz Khan, 29, was arrested on February 1, 2015 at Manchester Airport after information was received he was preparing to fly to Athens and then on to Syria to fight with the terrorist organisation.
His wife Afsheen Khan, 28, had provided some money from joint money in her account for him to buy the ticket and £1,000 cash that was found on him.




The court heard Afsheen Khan’s brother Rohan Malik had joined Islamic State when he was only 17 after flying out of Leeds Bradford Airport to Turkey without telling his family what he was doing.
He remained in contact with his sister and family who tried to persuade him to return without success.
Jonathan Sandiford, prosecuting, said it was through that contact that Ijaz Khan “became radicalised” and decided to join his brother-in-law.
In December 2014 they heard the news that Rohan Malik, who was only 18, had been killed in a coalition airstrike in Syria.
Rather than joining his brother-in-law in the fight Ijaz Khan then decided “to replace him on the battlefield”.
