Another stunner from Pakistan! Four ladies were stripped and thrashed after being accused of theft
In a viral video, the four ladies, one of whom is a teenager, are seen pleading to the people around to give them a piece of cloth to cover
After accusing four ladies, including a youngster, of'shoplifting,' a group of individuals in Pakistan undressed, dragged, and beat them up in the country's Punjab region.
On Monday, the event occurred in Faisalabad, around 180 kilometres from Lahore.
The four ladies, one of whom was a teenager, were seen in a viral video appealing with the people around them to give them a piece of cloth to cover themselves after being stripped naked, but they were thrashed with sticks instead.
The women were seen crying and pleading with the people to let them go, but they were unsuccessful. For an hour, they were paraded through the streets naked.
Five people have been detained.
After a few of videos of the incident became popular on social media, the Punjab police leapt into action.
"We have arrested five main culprits in this unfortunate incident," a Punjab police spokesperson said in a tweet on Tuesday.
He stated that the police are investigating the incident and that all parties involved will be prosecuted.
Under the relevant provisions of the legislation, a FIR has been filed against five suspects and several others.
The victim claimed that they went to the Bawa Chak market in Faisalabad to collect trash, according to the case.
"We were thirsty and went inside the Usman Electric Store and asked for a bottle of water. But its owner Saddam accused us of entering the shop with the intention to steal. Saddam and other men started beating us. Then they stripped, dragged and beat us through the marketplace. They also made our videos after stripping us... No one in the mob tried to stop the culprits to stop this atrocity," according to the complaint.
Dr. Abid Khan, the police chief of Faisalabad, said that five important suspects, including Saddam, had been apprehended, and that operations are being carried out to apprehend the remaining suspects.
