Aftab Ali Khan
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 would plead guilty to lying to investigators. According to a published report, he’d be sentenced to time served, and be deported to Pakistan.
Aftab Ali Khan of Watertown was scheduled to appear in court Thursday, after two initial hearings were delayed to give his attorney more time to prepare.
A detention hearing was scheduled in Boston on Friday for Aftab Ali Khan, who is charged with immigration fraud and lying to investigators. He is not accused of knowing about or trying to participate in the botched attack.
