Kashmir police chief Muneer Khan said on Monday he was unaware about the reported deportation of a Kashmiri man from Turkey to India after being picked up by Turkish authorities.

“I am not aware of any such case as yet,” said Kashmir inspector general of police Muneer Khan.

PTI, quoting sources, reported that Srinagar resident Afshan Parvaiz, 21, was deported from the Turkish capital of Ankara on May 25 and whisked away to an undisclosed destination by security agencies in Delhi.

He was being assessed by various security agencies for his alleged plans to join ISIS, the agency reported.

However, the intelligence officials in Kashmir said Parvaiz, a resident of Khanyar in old city, was deported because he had some “discrepancy” in his passport.

The news agency, quoting sources, also reported that Parvaiz had left home after an argument with his father, who wanted him to join a college while the son was interested in religious studies. They said he booked himself a seat on a flight to Teheran on March 23.

The agency also reported that another Srinagar resident Mohammed Taha, was deported from Turkey and sent to India. He has been put in preventive custody.
