Australian deported from airport for being ISIS ‘supporter’


An Australian national, suspected to be a supporter of ISIS, has been deported back home from Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport soon after his arrival.

Ahmad Fahim Bin Hamad Awang, a Malay-origin Australian youth, was first detained by security agencies when he landed at the IGI airport on Thursday night, reports NDTV.

After sustained questioning for a few hours at the airport, Mr Awang was deported to Perth, official sources said.

Some jihadi literature including ISIS propaganda materials were allegedly recovered on his laptop, the sources said, adding photographs of him posing with firearms were also allegedly found on the laptop.

Among the photos found by security agencies was one of a bare-chested Mr Awang, brandishing an assault rifle. Another showed him sitting with a pistol on his lap, claimed sources.
