Australian Test cricketer Usman Khawaja’s brother arrested by counter-terrorism police

Australian cricketer Usman Khawaja’s brother arrested over alleged planned terrorist attack

The brother of Australian cricketer Usman Khawaja will face court amid accusations he framed a colleague with a fake terror hit list targeting senior politicians as part of a dispute involving a woman.

Police in Australia have charged Arsalan Khawaja, 39, with forgery and an attempt to pervert justice.

"The arrest relates to documents allegedly found on University of NSW grounds in August this year containing plans to facilitate terrorism attacks", a police media statement said.

Counter-terrorism police detained Arsalan Khawaja, alleging he wrote a fraudulent diary entry that led to the now-withdrawn terror charge against Sri Lankan national Mohamed Kamer Nilar Nizamdeen.

Facebook is accused of using this data to assess "not just how many people had downloaded apps, but how often they used them". Collins also alleged that Facebook took aggressive positions against competitor apps by denying them access to any user data.


He was released only weeks later, when police figured out the script did not match his handwriting.

Ten Daily is reporting he is Arsalan Khawaja, the brother of Australian cricket star Usman Khawaja.

Now, police allege Mr Nizamdeen was set up by Mr Khawaja.

He was arrested around 8.30 a.m., when he was pulled over while driving through Parramatta and taken to the nearest police precinct.

Rudy Giuliani Accidentally Roasted President Trump With The Perfect Typo
Giuliani suggested without evidence that Twitter may have been involved in linking his tweet to the apparent anti-Trump website. He tells CNET the whole process took him 15 minutes, and "I did it, mostly, because I could".


The bogus hit list - which included former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull and the Sydney Opera House - was found in a notebook at University of New South Wales on 30 August.

He says they've always been determined to get to the bottom of the matter and "today's arrest is the culmination of that". Assistant commissioner Willing said there was no ongoing threat to the community.

"He has been charged with one count of attempting to pervert justice [Criminal Crimes act 1914 - Cth] and one count of forgery - making a false document [NSW Crimes Act]". On Tuesday Willing said police believe he was "motivated, in part, by a personal grievance". "But as you can appreciate, the matter is before the court, so we can't go into much detail", said Willing.

The arrest comes as Usman Khawaja prepares with the Australia squad in Adelaide ahead of Thursday's first Test against India, the start of a crucial four-match series in which the home side could challenge India's position as the world's top-ranked Test team.
