KARACHI: The mystery of knife attacks in Karachi continues to remain shrouded as all five cases of knife attacks on women were declared on Tuesday ‘A-Class’ — or closed — as no proof were found.
The local anti-terrorism court ordered to release Shehzad, so-called ‘facilitator’ , of the suspected attacker as police failed to arrest the culprit.
The police submitted a report and admitted that they did not find any evidence against the man; hence, the man should be released.
Accepting the police report, the ATC ordered Shehzad’s release declaring the five cases ‘A-Class’ or closed.
After the multiple attacks on women in the mega city, city police chief Additional Inspector General Mushtaq Maher claimed that 16 suspects, including “key suspect” Shehzad, had been arrested in this connection.
Shehzad was an alleged accomplice of the “prime suspect”, Waseem who was taken into custody from Sahiwal for committing the similar offences. However, the investigation proved that Waseem never visited Karachi; hence, the probe into the case came to a dead end.
