LAHORE - Two women were caught red-handed when they were fleeing after committing a house robbery in Harbanspura yesterday.

­Both the suspects brutally tortured and stabbed the housewife who fought back the robbery at her residence yesterday morning.

Police have described the suspects as “lady bandits” and said they were being interrogated regarding recently reported robberies in posh localities.

Both the sisters were employed as housemaids at the house Ilyas just two days before they attacked his foreign national wife. The Japanese national woman told the police that both the housemaids attacked and stabbed her when she saw them stealing jewelry from the cupboard. The victim was present alone at her house when her maids attempted robbery. She made hue and cry to attract neighbours.

Locals managed to capture the lady bandits as they tried to flee the crime scene with gold ornaments. They gave them a good thrash in the open before handing over the ladies to police for investigations. The police have registered a case and are investigating.
