Pakistani women look for pepper sprays and pocketknives for their own defense as police fails to catch main accused in motorway gang rape case. Daraz PK, one of the country’s top online stores, was out of stock of self-defense items this week. Aisha Raza, representative of Shop USA, said that demand for pepper spray had increased by 70 percent during the past week.
To meet the growing demand, a woman entrepreneur with a background in chemistry, has launched a new product and introduced to a closed group. It burns the skin and is “a better performer than pepper spray,” the description said.
Even after the passage of 11 days, Punjab Police’s designated teams have failed to arrest the key suspect, Abid Ali, in the Lahore motorway case. On September 9, two armed men allegedly gang-raped a woman stranded on the M11 route with her children before robbing her.
