Hate preacher Anjem Choudary is set to be subjected to even tighter controls after he was pictured in the capital today for the first time since Friday's murderous rampage by Usman Khan.

Khan had previously called the Islamist cleric a 'personal friend' and it is believed that Choudary's licencing conditions are currently under review by the authorities.

Choudary, 52, was pictured in east London wearing an ankle tag after his disciple Usman Khan butchered two in a murderous rampage on Friday.

The government is now cracking down on 67 jihadi terrorists who have been freed and who are already living in the community, with police visiting them over the coming days to establish if their conditions have been breached.

The Telegraph reported that counter terrorism police across the country are now in a race against time to lock up those who have already embedded themselves in local communities up and down the country.

Speaking to the publication, government sources said: 'We need to look at his whole licencing because we need to make sure vulnerable people are not going to be radicalised by him.'

Justice Secretary Robert Buckland has since ordered a case-by-case review, claiming any breaches of this would result in an 'immediate recall'.

Pictures emerged earlier today of London Bridge terrorist Usman Khan with his 'personal friend' Choudary.

Khan, 28, used the alias Abu Saif when he spoke alongside Choudary at the event on Sharia Law, organised by a group called Ahl Sunnah Wal Jumah.  

Despite pleading guilty with his fellow eight plotters, Choudary claimed Khan was innocent of trying to blow up the London Stock Exchange. 

The image was revealed as fresh details emerged of Khan's life in the run-up to his knife rampage on London Bridge.

A photograph shows Khan laughing in a brochure for the rehabilitation group that he was part of - and later turned on - at Fishmongers' Hall.

He was described as a success story after working with Learning Together, a Cambridge University programme that assisted him while in prison and after his release.

But he appears to have used the scheme to be able to carry out the terror attack that killed graduates Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23.   

Khan was a familiar sight on the streets of Stoke, taking part in frequent demonstrations from 2008 to 2010 which saw him and others distribute leaflets from a stall and wave flags

Khan even wrote organisers a thank-you note after they provided him with a computer he could use without breaching his licence, as reported by The Daily Telegraph. 

In his perverse poem, Khan claimed: 'I write so my words become a soothing light, I write so I can enter the coldest of hearts, I write so I can speak to those locked off from the world engulfed in the blinding absence of sight, I write so I can express what I feel is right.'

Meanwhile, his thank-you letter to staff claimed that the Learning Together programme had a 'special place in [his] heart'. 

Now it is believed that 67 freed terrorists will be visited by police over the next few days to asses whether or not they have breached their conditions, with the source claiming that 'further recalls are expected.' 

It emerged yesterday that he used to walk around school with a picture of Osama Bin Laden attached to the front of an exercise book.

Khan was also spotted laughing at videos of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York with other religious fanatics in a cafe when he was just 14.

In the same year, he started preaching Islamic extremism on the streets of Stoke on behalf of Anjem Choudary's banned terror group al-Muhajiroun.   

Khan was photographed waving an Al Qaeda flag as he ranted into a megaphone. 

Supporters of the proscribed al-Muhajiroun group have been behind several attacks, including the 2017 London Bridge atrocity, the 7/7 London bombings and the murder of Lee Rigby.

Choudary was jailed for five and a half years for inviting support for a terrorist organisation when he swore an oath of allegiance to Islamic State. He was released automatically on licence in October.

The British-born son of Pakistani immigrants from the Kashmir region, he had three elder siblings – two brothers and a sister.

Despite the hard-working ethos of his taxi-driving father Taj Kahn and his mother Parveen Begum, he left Haywood High School in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, with few qualifications. 

His weekly distribution of disturbing literature resulted in his family's modest three-bedroom terrace home in the Cobridge area of Stoke being raided by anti-terror police when he was just 17.

Khan's poem to rehabilitation team

I write so my words become a soothing light

I write so I can enter the coldest of hearts

I write so I can speak to those locked off

From the world engulfed in the blinding absence of sight

I write so I can express what I feel is right 

Shortly after the raid, an indignant Khan said: 'I've been born and bred in England, in Stoke-on-Trent, in Cobridge, and all the community knows me and they will know... I ain't no terrorist.' 

The teenager was investigated for promoting extremist views and radicalising vulnerable people.

But after a 20-month probe, the Crown Prosecution Service told officers they were unlikely to get a conviction with the evidence they had. Instead of acting as a warning, the lack of criminal charges against Khan simply emboldened him.

He vowed: 'We are going to carry on until the last breath, because we believe this is the truth.'

The extremist was true to his word. He spoke at a conference about why Britain should adopt Sharia law and began a campaign to stage a highly inflammatory march through the town of Wootton Bassett in Wiltshire, where British soldiers who died in Iraq and
