Detective Inspector Will Crowther, based at Slough police station, said: “The nature of the messages that Shah sent to MPs were horrendous and caused the victims significant anxiety and distress.

“Even after his first arrest, Shah continued to offend, sending further messages which were threatening serious violence and death to the recipients.

“The nature of these messages was absolutely shocking, and I am pleased that the jury convicted Shah and he has now been jailed for these crimes.

“Shah felt that he could hide behind a keyboard of a computer to send these messages, and his intention was very clear that he wanted to cause great distress.

“The messages are too violent and graphic to describe, but would no doubt have caused tremendous upset. One of the messages even forced the evacuation of a building, such were the nature of the threats.

“Emails or social media communications, even if sent from the privacy of one’s own home, can be traced, and Thames Valley Police will not tolerate such behaviour and will bring offenders to justice.

“Anybody who feels it is acceptable to use a computer to threaten violence and cause fear and hatred should think again. You will be pursued and prosecuted, and as is the case here, can end up with a prison sentence.”
