KARACHI: A teenage girl was injured in a knife attack by a man on a motorcycle in Karachi’s F. B. Area, police said on Monday night.

According to Central SSP Irfan Ali Baloch, the girl aged around 15 years was sitting behind her brother on a motorbike when the man attacked her from behind and sped away. She sustained a wound on the back.

“The nature of weapon used in the attack is not clear,” said the SSP.

Gulberg SP Abdullah Memon told Dawn that the girl was taken to a private hospital.

‘Knife attacks’ on 13 women in Gulistan-i-Jauhar and Gulshan-i-Iqbal areas of the city by bikers from Sept 25 to Oct 5 have triggered fear among residents.

The city police on Sunday claimed to have arrested a prime suspect in Sahiwal with the help of Punjab police officials. The suspect was identified as Waseem.
