AHRC demands probe into detention of Pakistani woman at US base
The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has demanded that the UN investigate the alleged detention of a Pakistani national, Dr Afia Sadeeqi, at a US military base in Afghanistan, BBC Urdu reported on Thursday.
It reported that the AHRC fears that Sadeeqi, who went missing along with her children five years ago from Karachi, is detained at a US prison in Bagram. Accused of being a member of Al Qaeda and masterminding terrorist attacks in the US, Dr Sadeeqi is wanted by several US investigation agencies. Both Pakistani and US intelligence agencies had confirmed her arrest soon after her disappearance, but since then, the government has been denying any knowledge of her whereabouts. Based on information received from various sources, the AHCR has prepared a report depicting the poor conditions she faces in jail. daily times monitor
