    A college friend of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been deported by federal immigration officials.

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirms 24-year-old Dias Kadyrbayev, a native of Kazakhstan, was removed on Oct. 23, the agency announced Thursday.

    Kadyrbayev was transferred by the federal Bureau of Prisons to ICE custody in Texas on Aug. 29. Officials said at the time that he faced "imminent" deportation.

    Kadyrbayev was sentenced to six years in prison in 2015 for removing items from Tsarnaev's dorm room at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, after recognizing Tsarnaev in photos released by the FBI days after the 2013 bombing. Prosecutors have said there was no evidence he knew about the bombing in advance.
