A FELLOW pupil of asylum seeker Lawangeen Abdulrahimzai has told how she was threatened by the triple killer after he lied about his age to attend her school.
Despite being four years older, Afghan Abdulrahimzai had falsely claimed he was 14 and that his parents had been killed by the Taliban.

Ex-pupil Rubie Clark, 16, says Abdulrahimzai, who was known as Lo, was always fighting and attacking people.
He beat up her boyfriend then threatened her by text message.
And she recalled watching in horror at the age of 15 as her then-boyfriend was unable to defend himself against the physically “frightening and intimidating” Afghan, who rained down punches on him in a bust-up at Avonbourne Boys and Girls Academies.
Rubie said: “He cycled up behind my boyfriend Darvin and jumped off his bike and smashed him in the face.
“Darvin tried to fight back but he couldn’t do anything against Lo because he was strong.
“He got quite badly hurt.
“Lo claimed Darvin had bad-mouthed him.
“Afterwards I messaged him on Instagram and said he was out of order.
“He replied, threatening me and said if it wasn’t against his culture then he would beat me up too.
“He looked way too old for what he claimed to be.
“The way he looked at you and the way he was around the school was intimidating and scary.
“He was always in fights or beating people up for no reason.
“People reported him to the school but nothing was done.
“It’s absolutely terrifying to think he was walking around in my school and that I had been around this killer.”
And The Sun on Sunday has uncovered images and videos from his Instagram account which should have set other alarm bells ringing.
One shows him, face covered, brandishing a huge “zombie knife”.
‘Looked more like a man’
Rubie was shocked to discover she and her friends had been sharing a playground with an adult who had already killed two people with an assault rifle in Serbia in 2018.
Abdulrahimzai was this week sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 29 years for the murder last year of aspiring Royal Marine Tom Roberts, 21, who had acted as a “peacekeeper” in a street dispute.
It has now been revealed that Abdulrahimzai was on the run from Serbia, having been convicted of murdering two other asylum seekers with an AK-47.
Claiming to be a child, Abdulrahimzai was placed at Avonbourne midway through the school year.
Rubie added: “He said that his parents had died.
“That’s the only thing he really shared.
“He never mentioned he had been in Serbia.”
After the double killing there, in a dispute over people-smuggling, Abdulrahimzai tried to flee to Norway but was refused asylum.
Weeks later he was on a ferry from France to Poole.
Rubie, who now works on a petting farm, recalled the moment she first laid eyes on the killer.

“I looked at my friend and we said, ‘There’s no way he’s 15’.
Rubie’s mum Siobhan Carlson, 38, from Bournemouth, said: “I’m absolutely disgusted that he was allowed into her school.
“Where were the checks? How can this be allowed?”
Another pupil was so scared of Abdulrahimzai’s bullying that his parents refused to let him return to classes unless the Afghan was removed.
But his mum says unwitting school bosses chose to protect the killer rather than their son.
The woman, who did not want to be named, said: “We took our son out of school, saying we didn’t want him to go back while he was still there.
But they said we would get in trouble if we didn’t.
In the end, we had no choice, so he had to go back and this man continued to threaten him.
“To now know that he had already killed two people is just horrifying.
“It was so wrong that he was at that school. My son was lucky.”
Another youth at the school said the killer “boasted” about having knives and other weapons, including a gun.
He badly hurt my boyfriend and said he’d attack me if it wasn’t against his culture. He was scary. People reported him but nothing was done.Rubie Clark
He said: “We all thought he was older than us.
“He looked more like a man than a boy.”
A fourth pupil said: “He was always hanging around town and was always flush with cash.
“Nobody knew where he got his money from.
“He used to go on about carrying weapons and posted a picture of himself with a huge knife.
“He was well into drill rap and loved the violence associated with it.”
Abdulrahimzai — who was in his late teens when he joined the school — also approached female pupils at other schools in the area.
A source said: “He would target vulnerable girls, frightening them into sending him suggestive selfies.
“Then he’d blackmail them into sending even more severe ones.
“He boasted about having them.
“It was bad enough but to think now that it wasn’t a teenage boy doing it but a grown man is sick.”
Abdulrahimzai was eventually kicked out of Avonbourne for carrying a knife.
Unbelievably he then moved to Winton Academy — a popular over-subscribed school.
Strength and aggression
While there, he continued to terrorise other pupils, chatting up 14-year-old girls despite being 19.
Meanwhile, we found another video of him, which revealed his strength and aggression as he attacked a boxing bag.
Last year, in March, Abdulrahimzai was prowling the streets of Bournemouth town centre looking for trouble.
He headbutted a man during a row outside a nightclub.
Moments later, he got into an argument over an e-scooter.
DJ and aspiring Royal Marine Tom acted as “peacekeeper” but was stabbed twice by Abdulrahimzai with a 10cm blade.
The victim’s mother, Dolores Wallace-Roberts, said: “My heart bleeds, broken-hearted knowing you are not here.”
Avonbourne school declined to comment but a source claimed no formal complaint was made to Avonbourne about Abdulrahimzai’s behaviour at the time.

The Afghan revelled in the violent lyrics of drill music glorifying knives and guns.
