Suspect in NYC subway passageway pipe bomb attack due in court

Suspect in NYC subway passageway pipe bomb attack due in court

Ullah is suspected of strapping a pipe bomb to his body and setting it off in a subway passageway.

The indictment was announced by the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY.

Ullah, a Bangladeshi immigrant, was the most severely injured person from the attack in the bombing of a heavily-trafficked underground walkway connecting the Port Authority bus terminal with the subway.

Authorities said the explosion was an isolated attempted terrorist attack. He was arrested soon after the pipe bomb failed to fully explode, though he was initially hospitalized after suffering burns. Ullah was injured, and three others were slightly hurt.

Prosecutor George Turner said prosecutors had gathered materials for the case including surveillance videos, photos from the crime scene, DNA evidence, statements that Ullah made to officials after his arrest, postings from his social-media accounts, e-mails, MetroCard data, and phone records.

NITI Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar on Wednesday said the government will now focus on raising the incomes of farmers. The Aayog vice chairman also said that all the experts backed the National Medical Commission Bill.

Authorities also found a passport in Ullah's name with the handwritten notation: "O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE".

The man accused of detonating a homemade explosive device at a busy transit hub in New York City last month, injuring five people, pleaded not guilty on Thursday to charges from a six-count indictment.

In this courtroom drawing, Akayed Ullah is seen on a video monitor from his hospital room, joined by federal defenders Amy Gallicchio (left) and Juliet Gatto on December 13, 2017, in NY. "Ullah's alleged plot failed, and he is now charged with federal terrorism offenses and facing life behind bars".

He will be arraigned before Judge Sullivan. President Donald Trump called for further restrictions to the F-4 program that allowed Bangladesh-born Ullah to obtain a US visa, fueling the myth of an immigrant crime wave.

Assistant U.S. Attorney George Turner estimated that any eventual trial would likely last roughly two weeks.
