British science teacher who plotted to go to Syria to fight with ISIS jihadis was stopped by his family who confiscated his passport – then arrested when he got a replacement to try again

Science teacher Jamshed Javeed, 30, has admitted two Syria-related terror offences

A British science teacher today admitted plotting to fight with ISIS in Syria but was only stopped after his upset family confiscated his passport and told the police.

Radicalised father-of-two Jamshed Javeed, 30, taught 11 to 16-year-old pupils at Sharples High School in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

Police said the teacher was ‘determined’ to leave his job and fight alongside ISIS but his family, including his pregnant wife, grabbed his ‘go bag’ of money, supplies and his passport.

Jamshed Javeed had intended to travel with a man he had met only three months beforehand but could not travel without his documents.

When he applied for a new passport and received it last December anti-terror police swooped and arrested him…

Islamic State attracts them like a magnet.
