Police laud couple killed in plaza

A married couple stabbed to death during an afternoon visit to a plaza in Brampton were “wonderful people” who became the unfortunate victims of a “completely unprovoked” attack, Peel Regional Police said yesterday.

Nazifa Shahghasy, 52, and her husband Rahimullah Shahghasy, 53, were at the plaza for a medical appointment Wednesday when a stranger with two knives attacked and killed them.

They leave behind a 21-year-old son and a 19-year-old daughter.

The Shahghasys were “outstanding members of our community” who came to Canada from Afghanistan 20 years ago, said Insp. Norm English.
