Hyderabad: A Telangana man who financed the al-Qaeda and spent five years in jail in the United States is to be brought to Hyderabad, his home town after his deportation to India.
Ibrahim Zubair Mohammed, 40, who pleaded guilty to charges of funding an al-Qaeda leader in the USA in 2015, was brought to India on a special flight to Amritsar on May 19. After questioning by the authorities, he was sent to a paid quarantine facility at Amritsar.
Sources in the Telangana police department said, "In a couple of days, he will be brought to Hyderabad and put in quarantine here. He does not have any cases registered against him in Telangana but will be on our radar."
