Pakistani Student Stabbed to Death in China

A Pakistani student named Moiz-ud-Din has been stabbed to death in China over a minor dispute with a Chinese cyclist.

Moiz was a 26-year-old student studying in China after having secured the Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC) scholarship in Nanjing Normal University.

The cyclist pulled out a knife and stabbed him on the street from where the injured student was taken to the nearby hospital. Moiz, however, did not survive the wounds and died later in the hospital on the same day.

He was enrolled in a Chinese language program at the university since 2017 as a part of the mandatory course before beginning his post-graduate studies in the country.

CSC offers scholarships to Pakistani students each year – some are enrolled directly through the CSC while others are referred by the Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) following an NTS test.

CSC has confirmed the incident saying that the student was enrolled in Nanjing Normal University through a scholarship program.

What Happened

The murder of the Pakistani student was also captured via CCTV footage, which led to the identification and apprehending of the suspect. In the video, two individuals can be seen arguing.

The Chinese national first walked away from Moiz, coming back with a knife and starting a brawl in the process. Moiz tried to knock him down however, he got stabbed multiple times, and suffered serious injuries. The cyclist left the place of the incident after knocking down the expat Pakistani student.
