Murager Alimuly recounted his experience to a police officer:
Sometime between 10 pm and 11 pm on my way home from going out, two strangers suddenly attacked me. One person started beating me with the iron rod in his hand while the other, who seemed to be clutching a knife, began to repeatedly stab me. Fortunately, the knife hit the power bank in my pocket twice, so it only scratched my belly. The iron rod, however, hammered me so severely that my back hurts terribly.
During the attack, I fell to the ground. The two men then started kicking me over and over and over. When a bright light suddenly intercepted the darkness from the distance, my attackers ran away. My buttocks hurt so badly that I could barely crawl to the side of the road.

Kaisha Akan, who was granted asylum in Kazakhstan last year, was attacked late on the night of January 21 near her home in Almaty, Bekzat Maksutkhanuly, head of the unregistered Nagyz Atatürkurt organization, which raises problems of persecution of Kazakhs and members of other Xinjiang indigenous ethnic groups, told Azattyk.
– Kaisha called me [Maksutkhanuly] and said that unknown people had beaten her. Her voice was weak. She said that she was attacked from around the corner as she was returning home from shopping. She was hit in the head with an unknown object, strangled and dragged on the ground, after which she lost consciousness. When she came to, she called me….
