Singapore has deported an Indian-origin man for radicalising and helping a compatriot go to strife-torn Syria and have launched a probe into his journey “with the intention to undertake violence”.

The Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs deported Gul Mohamed Maracachi Maraicar, 37, for radicalising Haja Fakkurudeen Usman Ali, 37, and helping him to go to Syria. Gul is a permanent resident of Singapore and had worked there as a system analyst.

Ali, who worked as a supermarket manager and became a citizen of Singapore in 2008, allegedly left the country last November to fight against forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the Ministry said Saturday. Officials were informed of his trip only once he left Singapore. The ministry, however, refused to comment on the investigation and deportation of Gul, a report in The Sunday Times said.
