Khan's attack on a Friday on London Bridge stirred memories of Britain's last election in 2017, when three militants drove a van into pedestrians in the same part of the capital and attacked people, killing eight and injuring at least 48. He released from prison in December 2018 on condition of wearing an electronic monitor.
"It is vital that the empty ideology of terror is rejected by all of us and that communities come together side-by-side to ensure that those seeking to divide us will never succeed", said Scotland Yard's Head of Counter Terrorism Policing, Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu.
The attack started inside Fishmongers' Hall before proceeding on to the bridge where the assailant was confronted by members of the public.
Video footage of the confrontation showed Khan, 28, being challenged by a man, reportedly a Polish chef, wielding the tusk - believed to have been taken from a nearby historic hall - and sprayed with the extinguisher. Another man was seen walking away from the incident holding a knife that was retrieved from the scene.
Police are now searching a property in the Midlands connected to Khan.
No other individuals are being actively sought in connection to the incident. Afterwards, as Khan was wrestled to the ground by the public, police members shot him dead.
The accused men denied the charges. Brandon Lewis, the security minister, declined to comment on the monitoring of Khan and said it was "one of the things police will be looking at". He was released in December previous year.
Started five years ago, the program was created to bring graduate students together with prisoners to study criminology in an effort to reduce stigma and marginalization experienced by many inmates.
He wrote: "My son, Jack, who was killed in this attack, would not wish his death to be used as the pretext for more draconian sentences or for detaining people unnecessarily". Police opened fire after he flashed what looked like a suicide vest, but it was actually a fake device.
