His attacker has been identified as one Farhan Pasha, who was later captured by people present at the wedding and handed over to police.

25-year-old Pasha attacked the former minister with a knife during the wedding. He tried to escape but was captured by people present. It’s, however, not clear what prompted him to attack Sait. A report by The Hindu said that Pasha, a local handicraft artisan, was  “disillusioned’’ as he had approached Mr. Sait a couple of times seeking a job and was disappointed over the delay.

Police are currently interrogating Pasha. Meanwhile, a statement Columbia Asia Hospital, where Sait is undergoing treatment, said that his condition remained critical and he was kept under monitoring in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
