NY court sets August 9 for Nafis case verdict

The verdict against a Bangladeshi youth held in US last year over his alleged bid to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in lower Manhattan will be delivered on August 9.

A Brooklyn federal judge, Carol Amon, yesterday ordered a psychiatric examination of the accused, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, according to New York Daily News.

He will be tested at the Metropolitan Detention Centre in Brooklyn by Richard Krueger, a forensic psychiatrist, and the reports must be complete in six weeks, according to the order signed by the judge.

Nafis was arrested on October 17 last year allegedly for plotting to blow up a Federal Reserve Bank in New York by detonating a 1,000-pound bomb.

Later on November 16, Grand jury indicted him on charges of using a weapon of mass destruction.

Federal prosecutors said Nafis was motivated to commit jihad by the fiery internet sermons of Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born Yemeni iman and al-Qaeda recruiter killed by a US drone attack.

On February 8, Nafis pleaded guilty to terrorism charges.

The crimes that Nafis reportedly committed generally refer to life-term imprisonment but the degree of punishment comes down following the admission of his guilt.

Nafis went to the US in January last year on a student visa under the pretext of attending college at Southeast Missouri State University and lived in Queens, New York, before his arrest.
