P.G. man indicted in alleged ISIS support plot
A federal grand jury has indicted a Prince George’s County man on a charge of attempting to provide material support and resources to the self-declared Islamic State, authorities said Monday. Nelash Mohamed Das, a citizen of Bangladesh who lives in Landover Hills, is accused of plotting to kill a member of the U.S. military in support of ISIS. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison. Prosecutors say Das, 24, spent months in late 2015 and early this year expressing his support on social media for ISIS and the attacks in San Bernardino, Calif., and Paris. Eventually, prosecutors say, he met with a confidential FBI source who he believed was a fellow ISIS sympathizer. The two plotted to kill the service member in Prince George’s County, prosecutors say. They say Das believed an ISIS contact in Iraq would pay them $80,000 for the attack. Authorities have not released the name of the service member.
