KARACHI: On the sixth day of Geo News special transmission ‘Aman Ramazan’, Dr Fauzia Siddiqui, the sister of the incarcerated Dr Aafia Siddqui in a US jail, made a startling revelation while talking to the host Dr Amir Liaqat Hussain that the US wanted to free Aafia and had even made an offer that she could serve the remaining part of her imprisonment in Pakistan. However, the former federal government did not fulfil its responsibilities, otherwise Aafia would have been with us today.
Fauzia also revealed that Maryam, the missing daughter of Aafia, was dropped by a mysterious white car near their house. She said that this happened a week after the matter was discussed by Interior Minister Rehman Malik with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Dr Aafia Siddiqui.
