Vancouver – A Vancouver man pled guilty this week to criminal charges in relation to an arson at Langara College last year, following an extensive Vancouver Police investigation.

Nasradin Abdusamad Ali, 24, pled guilty this week to deliberately setting fire at Langara College after two devices were detonated inside the school on April 1, 2019. A month prior, on March 7, 2019, Ali assaulted another Langara student, prompting him to come back and set fire inside the school.

Ali has been convicted for arson with disregard for human life and assault. Ali received one day in custody for the assault and three and a half years for the arson.
