KARACHI: The person attacking women with sharp object in the city has so far changed his appearance thrice and remains at large, managing to stab 15 women in 11 days.
According to sources police have so far arrested suspected resembling the accused, but no progress has taken place in the case.
However, police have claimed to have been taking measures to catch the accused through geo-fencing and probing the suspects who have been arrested so far.
On the other hand, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan has protested the series of similar attacks against women and girls. The party members registered their protest in the National Assembly by walking out of the hall.
But the incidents have left citizens with a question over their safety and the law-enforcement agencies perturbed whether the attacks are being carried out by an individual or a group.
While the police have barely moved closer to arresting the accused, other authorities have also not taken useful measures. In an attempt to protect those within their precinct, the administration of University of Karachi — situated in the area in question — has banned motorcyclists from wearing a helmet. This would be a hassle for students riding into the university as it is mandatory for motorcyclists to wear a helmet elsewhere in the city.
