The brother of Australian cricket star Usman Khawaja has been charged by police over the discovery of a fake terror plot to kill senior politicians, which he allegedly created to "set up" a male work colleague, when the two were fighting over a woman, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Khawaja’s brother Arsalan Khawaja, 39, is accused of trying to set up his male colleague Mohamed Kamer Nilar Nizamdeen, a PhD student working at UNSW, who was arrested in August after a terror hit list was found in his notebook. Police later released him after identifying that the handwriting did not match.

Police now allege Mr Nizamdeen was "set up in a plan" that was devised by Mr Khawaja in relation to a "personal grievance" over a woman.

Khawaja’s brother was granted bail with strict conditions, including surrendering his passport, not going within 100 metres of the University of NSW and a $50,000 surety, provided by his father Tariq Khawaja.
