subdomain not being removed from search results

by Steve   Last Updated December 23, 2017 05:04 AM

I'm using Wordpress multisite in subdomain mode.

I created the site cleonecapital.foracure.org.au, and later changed the URL of this site to www.cleonecapital.com.

In foracure.org.au's .htaccess, I have:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^cleonecapital.foracure.org.au$ [NC] 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.cleonecapital.com/$1 [R=301,L] 

and I know that cleonecapital.foracure.org.au redirects to www.cleonecapital.com.

My question is: why does Google still have cleonecapital.foracure.org.au in its index?

Just now, I have added the cleonecapital.foracure.org.au site to Google Search Console, and I have gone to Google Index > Remove URLs, and submitted the home page URL, and now I see the cleonecapital.foracure.org.au site listed as type Site removal.

Is this enough to remove cleonecapital.foracure.org.au from the Google search index?
