The sister of a Muslim fanatic who died in Syria after bragging about his ‘5-star jihad’ was arrested today by police investigating a Syria-related terrorism plot.
Tamannah Shaharin, 29, idolised her jihadi brother Iftekhar Jaman.
The 23-year-old chef from Portsmouth became one of the most infamous British extremists when he boasted on BBC Newsnight that the ‘holy war’ in Syria was like ‘5-star jihad’ because of its ‘relaxing’ nature. He also claimed it was ‘cool’ to hold a gun.

His tweets and video messages earned him a following and the adoration of his family, who said he had done ‘an honourable thing’ after he was killed in December last year while taking part in an assault on an arms depot.
But yesterday counter- terrorism officers swooped on his former home in Portsmouth and arrested his brothers – Tuhin, 26, and Mustakim, 23 – as well as their 29-year-old sister at her £500,000 home in Greenwich, South-east London, on suspicion of being involved in a Syria-related terrorism plot.
