KARACHI:

Fashion designer Mohammad Moazzam Khan and his two sons were stabbed and injured with a knife over a parking dispute in Karachi’s Pakistan Air Force Falcon Complex housing society, it was reported on Thursday.

According to the police, the incident took place Tuesday night, when Moazzam was embroiled in an argument over a parking issue with a person identified as Ibrahim Durrani.

 

As the fight grew intense, Ibrahim stabbed Moazzam and his two sons – Fahad Moazzam and Ata Moazzam – and fled the scene.

Later, the Sharae Faisal Police registered a case for the knife attack under Sections 324 [attempt to murder], 337-H(II) [Whoever does any act so rashly or negligently as to endanger human life or the personal safety of other, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three months, or with fine, or with both] read with 34 [Criminal acts by several persons in furtherance of common intention] of the Pakistan Penal Code.

 

Ibrahim and his father Khalid Durrani, a government officer, have been booked in the case and the Investigation Police has been assigned the case’s probe.

However, both the suspects had not been arrested until Thursday night.

According to Sharae Faisal investigation officer Israr Afridi, the police had raided the suspects’ house but they were not found there. He said the police later confronted Khalid, who was sick.

Afridi maintained that Khalid was neither seen in the CCTV footage of the incident, nor any evidence was found against him, which was why the police did not arrest him.

He said Ibrahim’s mobile had been powered off and suspected that he had deliberately switched off the phone to avoid arrest.

But efforts are underway to trace him using his mobile phone’s location and call detail record, Afridi added.

According to him, Durrani’s mental condition is not stable.
