A Sri Lankan family deported from Australia as illegal immigrants have been asked to return while they were flying back to the country.

Nadeeshalingam and Priya, as well as their two daughters Tharunika and Kopika, were deported from Melbourne last night.

However, lawyers representing them have been able to obtain an injunction order preventing the deportation.

Therefore, the aircraft had to divert and land at Darwin, 3,000 km away from Melbourne, at 3 am this morning.

Their lawyers have informed the court that the migrants could be prosecuted in Sri Lanka due to their past relationships.
