A First Information Report (FIR) has been filed against a resident of Karachi’s Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Falcon Complex for stabbing and injuring fashion designer Moazzam Khan and his two sons over a parking dispute.
According to reports, the incident took place on Tuesday night when Moazzam was embroiled in an argument over a parking issue with the suspect identified as Ibrahim Durrani.
In the video clips, which have gone viral on social media, a man can be heard and seen exchanging hot words with Durrani over the way he reversed the car. As the argument grew intense, Ibrahim stabbed Moazzam and his two sons – Fahad Moazzam and Ata Moazzam – with a Swiss knife and fled the scene.
In the FIR, Moazzam also said that he took his injured sons to the Aga Khan University Hospital himself despite being injured.
“My wife informed me that Ibrahim Durrani also resorted to aerial firing,” Moazzam said in the FIR, adding that the assailant had also threatened them with “dire consequences” if the matter was reported to the police.
Later, the Shahrah-e-Faisal Police registered a case against Durrani under Sections 324 [attempt to murder] and 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, an official of the Pakistan Air Force, have been booked in the case and the Investigation Police has been assigned the case’s probe. However, no arrests have been made so far.
According to reports, Shahrah-e-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. However, another report has said that Khalid instigated his son to “attack them more”.
He said Ibrahim’s mobile had been powered off and suspected that he had deliberately switched off the phone to avoid arrest.
Efforts are underway to trace him using his mobile phone’s location and call detail record, Afridi said, adding that he believes Durrani’s mental condition is not stable.
