Youth takes re­venge on women by stab­bing 17

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A Pak­istani man stabbed 17 women this year, killing one, in a misog­y­nis­tic spree be­cause he wanted “re­venge” for a cruel step­mother. Mo­ham­mad Ali, 22, tar­geted women in the streets at ran­dom from late Jan­uary un­til this month, po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tor Ma­lik Zul­fiqar Hus­sain said on Au­gust 20. “He told po­lice, ‘I hate women. I was tak­ing re­venge,’” Mr Hus­sain said. “He has con­fessed to in­jur­ing 17 women,” he said, adding that Mr Ali had used a knife. One of the women he stabbed died last week.
