A 19 year-old man from Wolverhampton has been jailed for eight years after he tried to import explosives from the dark web in an attempt to kill his parents.

Gurtej Randhawa of Grove Lane, Wightwick was arrested by officers from the National Crime Agency’s Armed Operations Unit (AOU) in May 2017, after he took delivery of a package he thought was a remote-detonated explosive device.

Intelligence indicated Randhawa had attempted to purchase a Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) – or a car bomb - with the intent to take the life of his parents, after his mother discovered he was having a relationship with a girl she disapproved of.

Fearing his parents would try to end his relationship, Randhawa embarked on a plan that he believed would enable them to stay together. But officers replaced the package with a safe dummy device before allowing it to be delivered to the address he had provided when ordering the explosives. They then watched as Randhawa tested the device and arrested him shortly afterwards.

Romeo and Juliet right there. Crazy **** what did he think was going to happen even if he succeeded...

Wonder if the mother will regret her interference, my son tried to kill us and his life is now over all because he couldn't see a girl I "disapprove of". Guessing different culture/class system/religion.

To try and blow your parents up because they disagree with who you're dating is madness. Surely he could have just moved away from his parents so they wouldn't be able to interfere with his life.

Though I don't condone forbidding dating out of caste or religion or race, trying to kill your parents over it is just mental. The guy is 19, could just leave the house and live with his girlfriend

Seems a bit of an over reaction to a disapproving parent...
