SYDNEY (AFP) - A Malaysian neurosurgeon jailed after two prostitutes died following cocaine-fuelled sex sessions at his Sydney home has been deported, authorities said on Thursday.

Suresh Nair was jailed in 2011 after pleading guilty to a number of charges, including supplying cocaine to Victoria McIntyre, 23, who died in hospital after a marathon sex and drug session at his apartment in 2009.

He also pleaded guilty to manslaughter by gross negligence in failing to call an ambulance for another woman, Suellen Domingues-Zaupa, 22, who died at his home in 2009 in a similar incident.

It has since emerged that Nair was a heavy cocaine user himself and continued to operate despite the overdose deaths of the two prostitutes.
