UK bomb plot terrorist scalded in prison revenge attack

Jailed terrorist Dhiren Barot was treated in hospital for burns under armed guard



One of Britain's most dangerous terrorists, Dhiren Barot, has been treated in hospital for severe injuries inflicted in prison.

The 35-year-old was jailed for life last year after plotting to blow up New York and London.

He was admitted to Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary more than a week ago but his stay in the hospital - as well as his identity - was kept secret to protect medical staff and other patients.

He is believed to have been scalded in Frankland Prison, Durham, and needed specialist treatment for burns.

Police mounted round-the-clock security around the terrorist, who was kept away from other patients, including armed officers and the Air Support Unit.

Barot had initially been examined at the infirmary on Monday and returned to prison the same evening. He was taken to the hospital again the next day for prolonged treatment to the burns. Any further treatment will now take place in the prison hospital.

The jail attack is being investigated by Durham Police and the prison authorities.

Superintendent Jo Farrell, who led the security operation, said: "I must thank the hospital staff, prison staff, patients, members of the public and the media for their cooperation and assistance which allowed this sensitive operation to pass off without incident."

Barot, 35, was sentenced to life, with a minimum term of 30 years, for planning to plant radioactive, chemical or toxic gas bombs and pack limousines with nails and explosives in the UK and America.

The al Qaida mastermind had been moved to Frankland Prison from Belmarsh in London after fears for his safety.

Barot was arrested in August 2004 and accused of conspiracy to murder.

He admitted planning to bomb several targets including the New York Stock Exchange, the International Monetary Fund HQ, and the World Bank.

Barot, who recruited other bomb plotters, was sentenced to life in prison last November. It was recommended he serve 40 years but that was cut to 30 years on appeal in May.

Barot was born in India then moved to Kenya with his family.

They came to England in 1973 and his banker father had to work in a factory to support them.

Hindu Barot converted to Islam aged 20. He later travelled to Pakistan for al Qaida training and funding.

Yeah what's the big deal? So we (white Anglo-Saxon societies) claim rule by law and suggest that we're more civilized and just in our outlook than Moslems or even criminals incarcerated for their misdeeds....

Sure Walt makes perfect sense to permit burning these people with whatever...

It would no doubt convince other radical Moslems that the model they should be aiming for is our caliber of justice and our "better" social model.

Right on!

They have their model, they're not looking to change their aim. Whaddaya think Jihadi's are lost souls looking to find their way? Pfftt. Don't tell me, poverty and marginalization, right!

Not that I think it's right what happened, but he is in a maximum security prison. Rapists, child molesters, and I guess now terrorist plotters all don't fare very well in general pop. What's the expression, don't forget your K-Y?

Was he sentenced to scalding? Was this what society decided he deserved as punishment for his crime?

Because either we've decided that torture, scalding, and rape are valid punishments, or we haven't. If we aren't willing to hand them out in a fair and honest way (we hereby sentence you to a torn anal sphincter), then we have a duty to not glory in it when it happens, and attempt to prevent it from occuring.

Saying that this is 'just what happens in prison' may be fact, but, it doesn't make it excusable, or make it something we should allow to carry on. If he had been a white prisoner under Muslim control, I wonder what the reactions would be to a prison system that shrugs and says 'well he got what he had coming.'

yeah, probably. So, I guess we'd better all make sure to go out smiling. Quick, get out your phone, and text god the joke about the elephant.

Some say punishment is meted out in the courts while justice is administered in prison.

There's a special spot in hell for the convicted pedophiles, rapists and mass murderers...and it begins in prison.

The injustice is when non-violent pot smokers get thrown in amongst them...

This guy wasn't sentenced to scalding, but nor were the innocent folks who would have been shredded by the nails in his bombs. They would simply have been at the wrong place at the wrong time...as is he.

Everyone knows the prison system is a holiday camp. Scalding is fun for both young and old alike.

Actually, it what comes from being tossed in prison. Honest there are some bad actors there and you have to expect to get into a few fights, a few beatings and if you are there long enough raped a couple of times. It's not in the minimum or maximum areas that you get sent to after evaluation. It in general population where you spend your three months being evaluated that you need to watch out for. You may want to be left alone to do your time and stay out of trouble, but you still have to deal with those who just don't give a shyte anymore because they know that this is all they are going to get out of life and if that means a few minutes of joy making you suffer, so be it. Not like they are going to get thrown in jail some more.

Violent crime should get you housed with violent offenders. All others should be rehabilitated and educated.
