Zain Khan Wiki – Zain Khan Biography
Zain Khan, 26, allegedly drove his mother’s white Toyota Aurion through Melbourne’s CBD, plowing into pedestrians before crashing into two other vehicles about 6.20 pm on Friday. Among the alleged victims was a 76-year-old man from Brunswick, who was killed when Khan’s car collided with his Hyundai at the intersection of Bourke and Russell Street. Two women remain in hospital with head injuries and broken bones, while another man is recovering with a broken pelvis and a concussion. Khan’s mother, who did not want to be identified, said her son is a “nice kid” and a “humble son” who fell ill. “I don’t think he wanted to hurt people, he wasn’t like that,” she told 7News. She said her son had stopped taking his antipsychotic medication two months ago, although he continued to take other mood stabilizers. “He wasn’t [a] terrorist, he has mental health issues,” she said. Khan’s family claims he was “normal” when he took injections of an important medication, but when he stopped taking them, he wanted to move out.
Zain Khan is 26 years old.
He worked in a cafeteria at Melbourne’s Sunshine Public Hospital, about 20 kilometers west of Bourke Street, and was working on the day of the tragedy.But Khan did not complete his shift on Friday and left work early. A video of Khan sitting in a car staring intently into the camera lens also surfaced online. Other clips show Khan dancing alone. After Friday night’s horror scenes, Khan was bizarrely filmed lying on the windscreen of his mother’s car, dressed in white from head to toe. Two police officers pulled him out of the Toyota, arrested and restrained him, and then led him away from the shocked onlookers. Victoria Police alleged Khan sped off after allegedly hitting three pedestrians at a tram stop on the corner of Bourke and Swanston streets. It is understood Khan, from Melton West, 40 kilometers from Melbourne, was unable to adequately answer police questions and was taken to hospital. He was released on Saturday night and faced a late night court hearing in which he was charged with 10 offences, including murder and attempted murder. He also faces three counts of intentionally causing serious injury and two counts of conduct endangering life. Police confirmed that Khan is known to have a history of mental illness and have officially ruled out terrorism as a potential motive.
