Man Held In Times Square Car Bomb Probe Deported To Pakistan

BOSTON (AP) — Federal immigration officials say a Pakistani man arrested in Massachusetts during the investigation into last year’s failed New York Times Square car bombing has been deported to Pakistan.

Aftab Ali Khan, who was from Watertown, was accompanied by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers on a flight from Logan International Airport to Islamabad on Sunday. Khan, his uncle and a man in Maine were arrested on immigration violations nearly two weeks after the failed bombing attempt on May 1, 2010.

Khan pleaded guilty to immigration and illegal money-transfer charges. He did not face terrorism-related charges.

Federal authorities say Khan unwittingly supplied $4,900 to Faisal Shahzad, of Bridgeport, Conn., who was convicted in the attempted bombing.

Khan came to the U.S. in August 2009 on a 90-day visa to get married.

    He will probably be treated like a hero in Pakistan. There are sooo many Illegal immigrants in the US, it’s just hard to believe ! We should have put this guy in a US prison with no other moslims.

    Homeland Security should run checks on all taxi drivers from India and Pakistan.

  3. Gregory says:

    Just how do these alien criminals get allowed into the U.S.? Does the State Department have a visa machine ie: put in a dollar; get a visa? Or did this Paki just walk across the border? Or is he here teaching a class in Bomb Making 101 in the local Mosque under the guise of religious freedom?
