Australia batsman Usman Khawaja has asked for privacy after his older brother was arrested in New South Wales on Tuesday.

Arsalan Khawaja was arrested in relation to "documents allegedly found on University of NSW grounds in August this year containing plans that purported to facilitate terrorism attacks," NSW Police confirmed.

The 39-year-old has been charged with one count of attempting to pervert justice and one count of forgery – making a false document.

As Australia prepare for Thursday's opening Test against India in Adelaide, Usman Khawaja fronted the media to address the situation.

"I won't say much. It's a matter for the police to deal with it," the 31-year-old star told reporters. "Out of respect for the process, it would be inappropriate for me to make any further comment.

"I just ask for you to please respect my privacy and my family's privacy at this time."

Earlier on Tuesday, NSW Police released a statement which read: "A man arrested in Sydney’s west this morning as part of an ongoing NSW Joint Counter Terrorism Team investigation has now been charged.

"Officers from Operation Moorsel arrested the 39-year-old Westmead man in Burnett Street, Parramatta, at 8.30am.

"The arrest relates to documents allegedly found on University of NSW grounds in August this year containing plans that purported to facilitate terrorism attacks.

"The man was taken to Parramatta Police Area Command where he was spoken in to regarding the alleged offences of attempt to pervert justice, and forgery – making a false document.

"He has been charged with one count of attempting to pervert justice [Criminal Crimes act 1914 – Cth] and one count of forgery – making a false document [NSW Crimes Act].

"The man has been refused bail and is due to appear in Parramatta Local Court today [Tuesday 4 December 2018]."
