KARACHI: Unidentified armed men raided the residence of Dr Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani scientist imprisoned in the US, in Gulshan-e-Iqbal early Tuesday morning and tortured the watchman.
According to Dr Siddiqui’s family, three unknown men arrived at their residence at around 3:00 a.m and tied the watchman with ropes.
