Police yet to arrest the culprit
Lahore police are yet to arrest the man who has harassed the girl near Greater Iqbal Park on independence Day, media reported.
However, a case was registered at the Lari Adda police station on the SHO’s complaint, after witnessing the incident through the video.
As per FIR, the incident took place on Circular Road, near gat 1 of the Graeter Iqbal Park.
The report further states approximately 10-12 “morally unrestrained” men who were riding motorcycles, harassed two women with a child seated in between them.
According to the FIR, the video shows motorcyclists pursuing the rickshaw, catcalling and leering at the women, as well as making obscene gestures.
“One of the men, wearing a white shirt and blue jeans, jumped onto the rickshaw to forcibly kiss one of the women on her cheek and also tried to tear her clothes off,” it noted.
