The brother of Australian cricket star Usman Khawaja has admitted to assaulting a parking inspector, months before he allegedly hatched a fake terror plot to frame a love rival.
Arsalan Khawaja, 39, pleaded guilty to common assault at the Waverley Local Court, in Sydney's eastern suburbs, on Thursday.
The former University of New South Wales (UNSW) employee was accused of screaming at Randwick Council employee Kamini Narayan as she gave him a parking ticket last year, the Daily Telegraph reported.
The assault happened about three months before Khawaja was charged with plotting to frame former UNSW IT department colleague Mohamed Kamer Nilar Nizamdeen with a fake terror hit list.
Khawaja allegedly devised his plan after he became jealous about Mr Nizamdeen's friendship with their colleague and UNSW student Shakeela Shahid, 21.
Mr Nizamdeen spent four weeks in jail for the fake terror plot before Khawaja was charged with allegedly forging the attack plans.
