The man was denied entry to Australia after Australian Border Force officers discovered the footage.

An Indian tourist was denied entry to Australia after a video of a child being physically abused was allegedly found on his mobile phone.

Australian Border Force officers questioned the 45-year-old man, who was holding a Tourist Visa, when he arrived at Perth International Airport via Malaysia on Thursday.

“Although the video wasn’t of a sexual nature it did show a child being physically assaulted,” ABF WA regional commander Rod O’Donnell said in a statement.

“Visitors to Australia need to be aware that imagery depicting any form of child exploitation is not permitted to be brought into Australia.”

The man was held at the Perth Immigration Detention Centre until his removal from the country on Sunday morning.
