Former Pakistani cricketer, Waqar Younis, took to Twitter to condemn the inhumane treatment of a worker by an ‘influential group’.
A video doing the rounds on social media shows a man pushing another man tied with a rope into a sewer.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Naz Baloch also condemned the incident.
Journalist Shahid Abbasi wrote that the incident happened in Mandira near Rawalpindi.
In another tweet, he stated that “local sources claim that the boy, who was ‘pushed into a sewer’ had an affair with a woman in the area so he was punished by the locals.”
“Now only the police report will be able to uncover the truth,” he added.
