Brother of airport bomber deported
The brother of the terrorist who died after an attempted suicide car bomb attack on Glasgow Airport last June has been deported. Sabeel Ahmed, 26, of Bangalore, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey last month to withholding information about the attack. He admitted not disclosing to police an e-mail which his brother wrote about plans for the attack.
Mr Ahmed had opened the e-mail, in which his brother asked him to keep the information secret for as long as possible, after the incident had taken place. The former NHS doctor was given an 18-month prison sentence, but was freed for deportation because of time served on remand.
Kafeel Ahmed drove a burning Cherokee Jeep into the terminal building at Glasgow Airport on June 30 last year. He was arrested at the scene after being hosed down by an off-duty police officer, but he had already suffered 90% burns. He died in Glasgow Royal Infirmary on August 2.
According to reports in India, Sabeel Ahmed returned home yesterday after arriving in the southern city of Bangalore on a flight from London.
