Sister says can’t confirm reports on Aafia’s death

KARACHI: Dr Fauzia Siddiqui, sister of Pakistani scientist Dr Aafia Siddiqui who is imprisoned in the US, said on Sunday that she could not confirm any of the miscellaneous reports circulating on social media about Dr Aafia’s health or life.

Dr Fauzia said that they have not been told anything in this regard by the Government of Pakistan, Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the US prison officials, some local media outlets reported.

Earlier, some reports circulating on social media suggested that the imprisoned Pakistani scientist has passed away in the United States. Dr Fauzia said that they have no contact with Dr Aafia for the past two years, adding that despite countless efforts, they could not find an answer to their queries from either Pakistani or the US officials. Dr Fauzia, however, said that Dr Aafia’s status is mentioned as alive in the online database of prisoners.
