Lodi Islamic Leader Deported To Pakistan In Terror Probe
Sacramento, CA — An Islamic religious leader held on immigration charges as part of a terror investigation in Lodi agreed Friday to be deported to Pakistan along with his son.
Muhammed Adil Khan and his 19-year-old son, Mohammad Hassan Adil, admitted in a San Francisco court today to overstaying their visas.
In exchange, immigration authorities dropped other allegations that the two misrepresented themselves to obtain religious visas.
Their attorney denied his clients had any connection to terrorism. A second religious leader also held on an immigration complaint intends to fight his deportation.
Two other Lodi residents are the only ones facing criminal charges. Hamid Hayat is charged with two counts of lying to the F-B-I last month when he said he did not attend a terrorism camp in Pakistan in 2003 and 2004.
His father was indicted on a single count of lying to investigators by denying his son attended the camp.
