Amal Abdulfattah told the investigators that she got married to Osama before 9/11, but did not specify any date. According to her, Osama was living with his three wives, including her, and some Arab families. Then came 9/11 and the family scattered.
“She stayed in a flat in Karachi for almost 8/9 months and all the things were arranged by some Pakistani families and Saad, elder son of Osama, was coordinating all the things,” the report said.
She told the investigators that during her stay in Karachi she changed her residence six or seven times. The investigators say they have not been able to trace Saad.
According to the JIT report, after their reunion in Peshawar Osama and Amal went to Swat where they stayed for 8/9 months.
Thereafter they stayed in Haripur for two years and subsequently shifted to Abbottabad and lived there for almost six years till the time Osama was killed.
Amal’s eldest daughter, Safia, was born in Kandahar in 2001. Aasia and Ibrahim were born in Haripur in a government hospital and Zainab and Hussain in Abbottabad.
The report discloses that Osama’s family lived in Pakistan with the families of two Pakistanis, Ibrahim and Abrar.
Investigators told Dawn that the two Pakistani men had fake identity cards from Sargodha and their real identities were never ascertained because they were killed during the US raid on Osama’s compound in Abbottabad.
