KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has taken strict notice of the recent spate of knife attacks on women in the metropolis, and ordered immediate arrest of the culprits involved.
In his statement issued via PPP media cell, Bilawal directed the concerned authorities to take strict and swift action against the culprits behind the attacks, which have injured 13 women in different parts of the city.
“PPP will not tolerate [these] attacks on innocent women. These terrorists are challenging our nation by attacking our women,” he stated.
“Every mother and sister in Pakistan is a Benazir Bhutto, and their protection is obligatory upon us,” he said, adding that the attackers do not deserve even an ounce of mercy.
The PPP chairman also asked the judiciary to direct the police to ensure protection of women.
He further said that the attackers should be handed exemplary punishment, otherwise fingers will be raised.
Five more girls were wounded in fresh knife attacks in Karachi late Wednesday, police said, which occurred over a span of three hours and spread a renewed wave of terror across the city.
