Prakash put him in contact with Aussie jihadist Sevdet Besim.

The eventual plan, hatched from the Lancashire teenager’s bedroom in 2015, was to run over a cop and then behead them.

In one message, the boy suggested Besim get his “first taste of beheading” by attacking “a proper lonely person”.

Prakash was held in Turkey a year later after featuring in IS videos linked to several plots in Australia and encouraging lone wolf attacks against the US.
