Relatives, LEA official issue contradictory statements; FBI website shows her as absconder  KARACHI - Despite her disappearance in 2003 in connection with the deadly attacks in the United States on September 9 2001, the name of Dr Afia Siddiqui, the wife of Abu Ammar, Ali bin Abdul Aziz, who was booked among four plotters of the incident, is still present as an absconder on the website of Federal Investigation Bureau (FBI) and the agency is seeking information about her to probe the tragedy. Afia was disappeared from Karachi along with her three children after a month of the arrest of Khalid Sheikh Muhammad (KSM) in March 2003 from Rawalpindi. She had doctoral degree in neurology from the MIT University, in Boston, United States. Afia, a resident of Gulshan-e-Iqbal, had reportedly been picked up by intelligence agencies on March 30 when she was on the way in cab to catch a flight for Rawalpindi but never reached the airport. Siddiqui was allegedly handed over to the Americans who kept her detained at Bagram prison in Afghanistan but the official website of FBI still shows her an absconder in connection with the 9/11 attacks and wanted her for interrogation about her affiliation with Al-Qaeda and KSM. According to the reports published in international media, Afia had allegedly provided assistance to KSM to accomplish the attacks. However, the family of her ex-husband, on condition of anonymity, told that she was a pious and practicing Muslim woman and used to distribute Quran and other religious books to prisoners and seminaries. They further told that she had been living with her husband, Amjad Khan, and two children, including son Muhammad and daughter Mariym, in the US for several years but their marriage had broken before a week of the birth of their third child. The cause of divorce remained mysterious because the families of both accused each other as religiously radical. The newly born baby was just six months old when Afia went missing while Abu Khalid, the nephew of the KSM, told The Nation that Afia got her second marriage with Ali Bin Abdul Aziz, brother of Khalid. He further said that he was picked up by law-enforcement agencies (LEA) from Karachi and detained at Bagram Jail for three years when the marriage took place adding that he never heard the screams of a woman in the prison. Dr. Fauzia, a neurosurgeon and sister of Afia, said that she did not know about the second marriage of Afia but Muhammad Hussain, an uncle of KSM, reaffirmed that she had married for a second time and said that KSM and his sister Mariym Bibi arranged the ceremony at Hub Chowki. He further said that Aziz and Afia were not satisfied from their marriage and it close to end when she disappeared. To a query, Hussain replied that Afia's liberal way of life led to a dispute with her second husband. On the contrary, western media quoted her colleagues that Afia was a hardliner Muslim seeking the conversion of the US into a Muslim State and used to distribute books and other Islamic stuff among her colleagues and other people. Whenever contacted, Dr. Fozia, the sister of Afia Siddiqui, declined to comment on the issue adding that she and her family could not say anything without the permission of Afia's lawyer as a petition for her release is under consideration in a US court. She added that the case would be resolved soon. Fauzia disclosed that they have found the whereabouts of Afia and her children but refused to provide further information. When contacted Afia's nephew, Muhammad, said "how could I told you when I don't know about anything." Afia's family had also declined to pursue her case when deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry took suo moto action on the issue of missing persons. The name of Dr. Afia Siddiqui is also mentioned in the list of Human rights organisations. Meanwhile, an official of a law enforcement agency told, on condition of anonymity, that the families of Afia and Amjad were reluctant to pursue the case at any forum and not even cooperated with the LEA in order to find her whereabouts. He added that not a single complaint has so far been lodged on behalf of their families with any police station since the day of her disappearance. He added that Afia's uncle had written a letter to the editor of a local newspaper, a couple of months after her missing, which brought the issue into public. He said that a federal minister in the previous government had strictly banned any contacts with Afia's family.
