Another video of a woman being harassed in public on August 14 surfaced on social media.
In the video, it can be seen that the woman is travelling on public transport [rickshaw] when a man out of nowhere jumps on the rickshaw and forcibly kisses her.
The woman seems shocked at what happened to her and we hear a scream in the background.
The women are visibly disturbed at the sight of a couple of motorcyclists hounding the rickshaw, catcalling and leering at them.
The rickshaw appears to be surrounded by men in cars and motorcycles carrying the national flag, which indicates that the incident took place during Independence Day celebrations.
The video triggered anger and uproar on social media, with many people calling for the government to take strict action against sexual harassers.
In another video shown on Geo news, it can be seen that men present at Greater Iqbal Park have surrounded a woman and are harassing her. The woman took a stick and aimed it at the men surrounding her. Then men then dispersed to protect themselves.
Previously, a viral video showed a woman being sexually assaulted by a large group of men at Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore on August 14. The incident was confirmed after a First Information Report (FIR) was registered.
Federal Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari tweeted on Friday that 24 men had been detained through geo-fencing and matching records from National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) for harassing and assaulting a female TikToker and her team members at Lahore’s Greater Iqbal Park on Independence Day.
The minister wrote, “More arrests are expected today” in connection with the “condemnable” incident.
