UK investigative police Scotland Yard has finally admitted that they could not establish any motive behind the London attacker Khalid Masood whose brazen act in front of the British Parliament led th whole world believe that he was a terrorist and some possibly linking him to ISIS, which unilaterally claimed responsibility knowing that the free credit should not be missed.
Sctoland Yard said they may never know the motive behind the attack on parliament by Khalid Masood who acted alone and ruled out any further attacks. The attack last weekend killed five people, Masood, 52, in just 82 seconds.
“We still believe that Masood acted alone on the day and there is no information or intelligence to suggest there are further attacks planned,” said Met police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, who is the Senior National Coordinator for UK Counter Terrorism Policing.
“We must all accept that there is a possibility we will never understand why he did this. That understanding may have died with him,” he added.
So far 11 arrests were made and 10 of them were released after interrogation, he revealed. The attack which occurred at 14:40:08 on Wednesday was by Masood in his car that mounted the pavement over Westminster Bridge and it continued until 14:40:38 before crashing into the perimeter fence of the Palace of Westminster. Five pedestrians were killed in the mishap.
When police reached, the vehicle had officially hit the wall or construed to be an attack on parliament and Masood was killed by the police. Ironic, ISIS soon claimed that he was its member. The world was shocked at the news and condolences poured over UK, which was amused to know more than what was real.
But the credit goes to famous Scotland Yard, known for its centuries of investigative prowess, to admit openly that Masood had acted on his own and not a terrorist per se. In any other country, the police would have come under pressure to keep toeing the popular belief that it was a terrorist attack. Gleefully ISIS owned him as he was dead.
Moreover, Masood was not born Muslim. His original name was Adrian Russell Ajao, born in Dartford before converting to Islam, said the police. Born to a white mother and black father, he had apparently a victim of racism in UK. Any film director would have made a film out his frustration to hit the wall of Westminster but his mistake was he killed pedestrians along the way, which require a thorough probe now.
“Nevertheless, we are determined to understand if Masood was a lone actor inspired by terrorist propaganda or if others have encouraged, supported or directed him. If the latter proves to be the case, they will face justice,” Basu said.
