Inmate guilty of attempted murder after attacks at three different prisons

HMP Wayland near Thetford Credit: PA

An inmate has been found guilty of the attempted murder of two prison officers and a fellow inmate after a series of assaults behind bars.

Aklakur Rahman, from Ipswich, attacked an inmate at HMP Wayland near Thetford in 2017.

He went on to cut a prison officer in the hand during the attack.

In two other separate incidents, he lunged at the neck of an officer with a sharpened piece of wall masonry at HMP Lincoln and attacked another with a screw at HMP Wakefield a few weeks later.

Rahman is to be sentenced at a later date.

Aklakur Rahman was dogged in his determination to kill in these attacks. All four of his victims received severe cuts to the head or neck area and required hospital treatment – not to mention the untold psychological trauma of such violence.
