British Intelligence services are investigating possible links between a Sri Lanka suicide bomber and an extremist group launched in Britain by a notorious hate preacher, The Telegraph reported.

One theory is that Jameel Lathief may have fallen under the influence of Hizb ut Tahrir (HuT) while living in London and studying at Kingston University in the mid-2000s.

The group, which calls for the foundation of an Islamic caliphate, had a strong presence on the Kingston campus at the time Lathief was in the UK to study aeronautical engineering.
