The photon after Compton process is not a secondary particle but the primary with reduced energy and changed direction.

You can get the information in G4SteppingAction

G4Track* theTrack = theStep->GetTrack();

if (theTrack->GetDefinition() == G4Gamma) {
   if(theStep->GetPostStepPoint()->
      GetProcessDefinedStep()->GetProcessName()=="compt") {
