Notorious knife attacker claims five more
Notorious knife attacker claims five more: Police has said that five more girls have been wounded in a fresh wave of attacks in Karachi late Wednesday, the attacks occurred over a span of three hours. The latest attack of the attack had taken place at Gulshan Chowrangi, in which a 12-year-old girl was assaulted with a knife. Late on Wednesday, the attacker first targeted a woman in the city’s Gulshan-e-Jamal area, followed by another attack near Dalmia road, the police said. Within an hour of the two attacks, another woman — a student of Federal Urdu University of Arts Science and Technology — was attacked in the metropolis’ NIPA Chowrangi vicinity.
“She was treated for the wound on her back at the Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre.”
The attacker seems to have posed a challenge to the law enforcement authorities, who are yet to nab the assailant.
The first incident, in the chain of attacks, was reported on September 25. Since then, a total of 13 attacks have been reported.
The First Information Report (FIR) of an attack on Shaheen on September 26 was registered by the police today (Wednesday), after repeated requests from the victim’s family.
“The police and other law enforcement agencies are constantly engaged in efforts to apprehend the attacker,” Sindh Information minister Syed Nasir Hussain Shah said. “These attacks will not continue for long and we will arrest this man within a day’s time.”
The incidents have sparked fear and panic among the residents of the metropolis, forcing women to take extra precautions before venturing out.
A female student of Karachi University (KU) said police officers have advised women to be careful while walking on the streets.
“We have been directed to not leave our houses after Maghrib prayers,” explained another student.
Female students also said that they are taking all possible precautions, including avoiding walking alone at night and not staying out for too long.
A KU student said that the attacker seems to be suffering from a psychological disorder. “Normal people do not commit such acts,” she said.
Another student noted that government should take notice of the issue and resolve it immediately.
