Hundreds booked for harassing, molesting Pakistani TikToker girl in Lahore – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Lahore Police have booked as many as 400 people for allegedly assaulting and harassing a Tiktoker girl during Pakistan’s Independence Day at the historic Minar-i-Pakistan, Dawn reported on Wednesday.
The girl was filming a video near Minar-e-Pakistan when a mob of nearly 300 to 400 people attacked her and tore off her clothes.
In horrific videos of the assault, hundreds of men can be seen surrounding the woman, tossing her in the air, tearing her clothes and molesting her. Some men even tore off her trousers.
PTI quoted officials as saying that the girl was still traumatised by the incident and broke into tears while registering her FIR.
“We were shooting the clip when a good number of youngsters started teasing me. They were joined by more and more. Seeing the suspects harassing me, the security guard of the Minar-i-Pakistan Park opened the central gate to let her enter to take shelter. When I crossed the gate and entered the park, the suspects came after me. They tore my clothes and molested me. They dragged and tossed me up in the air for fun. They also beat my team members, and used abusive language,” she said and added the humiliation continued for an hour before some people (of them) finally managed to rescue her.
She alleged that during this shameful incident her cell phone, a gold ring and cash worth PKR 150,000 were snatched as well.
There were reports on social media that the girl was carrying two flags — a Pakistani and an Indian — to use them for her TikTok video clip in connection with the Independence Day of both countries. Someone from the crowd raised an objection to this and afterwards this incident took place.
The police however did not confirm this social media report.
