Melbourne: A Pakistani Air Force cadet charged with secretly filming a female cadet in the shower at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) has been withdrawn by the Pakistani government.

"Cadet Obaid Fayyaz has been withdrawn from ADFA on disciplinary grounds," a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) spokesman said in a statement from Islamabad, 'Sydney Morning Herald' daily reported today.

"The matter is under investigation in Australia and a decision (on Fayyaz's future) will be undertaken on completion of the proceedings," he added.

Fayyaz had allegedly hid a mobile phone in a vent above the shower.

The female cadet, 21, discovered the phone on August 25, and reported the matter to the Australian Defence Force Investigative Service.

Police later seized a mobile phone, a laptop computer and a USB memory stick.

"Fayyaz has been withdrawn from training, and accommodation has been arranged for him in accordance with bail conditions that stipulate he does not contact or approach (the) female cadet," the PAF spokesman said.
