JAKARTA, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- An Indonesian man has been sent back home from Japan for allegedly planning to join IS terrorist group in Syria, an Indonesian police officer disclosed here on Friday.
Azni Muzakir alias Abdul Zakir, 44 years old, arrived in Indonesia's Bali Island on Wednesday, Senior Commissioner Martinus Sitompul, spokesman of national police said.
The spokesman revealed that the police would probe Muzakir's alleged implication in the terrorist group.
"According to a plan, he will be flown to Jakarta for an intensive investigation. A team from anti terror-squad has been waiting for him in Soekarno-Hatta airport," he said at the national police headquarters referring to the main airport in the country's capital of Jakarta.
Muzakir first came to Japan in 1997 and resumed entering the country in 2007, said Agung Sampurno, spokesman of Indonesian immigration office.
The Indonesian security authorities have attempted to stop dozens of citizens insisting on taking journeys to Syria for grouping with the IS, and have been monitoring scores others back home from Syria for joining the IS activities.
