LAHORE – Mother of Dr Aafia Siddiqui Tuesday denied a web report (by thenewstribe.com) that alleged her daughter had contracted cancer and was sexually abused in a US jail.

In a statement, she maintained such reports were being circulated deliberately to malign her daughter. She did, however, express fear that her daughter may be being fed food laced with carcinogens. “Aafia is being held in a solitary cell, so reports of her being pregnant are baseless,” her mother added.
