KARACHI: A woman was stabbed by her former husband in Federal B Industrial Area on Tuesday morning.

Area SHO Mohammed Sarfraz said that Mariam Ibrahim, 42, who was a polio worker, left her home at 7.45am to join the ongoing vaccination drive.

He said the suspect, Ghulam Nabi, was already waiting for her at one corner of the street and he attacked her. She suffered wounds on the neck and fell on the road.

Area people rushed to the scene and saved the woman’s life, the SHO said, adding that the suspect fled on a motorcycle.

He said she was taken to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, where doctors said she was in ‘stable’ condition.

The suspect had divorced her some months ago.
