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.READ MORE: New York City Rolls Out $100 Incentive For Getting Vaccinated As CDC Report Warns Delta Variant As Contagious As Chicken Pox
