Prime News, International (Lahore), Dec 8:- A group of people in Pakistan stripped four women, including a teenager, dragged and beat them up after accusing them of “shoplifting” in the country’s Punjab province. The incident took place in Faisalabad, some 180 km from Lahore, on Monday.
The four women, including a teenager, were seen in a viral video pleading to the people surrounding them to let them have a piece of cloth to cover themselves after being stripped but they were beaten with sticks.
The women were seen crying and requesting the people to let them go but to no avail. They were paraded naked in the streets for an hour.
Pakistan’s Punjab police swung into action after a couple of videos of the incident went viral on social media.
“We have arrested five main culprits in this unfortunate incident,” a Punjab police spokesperson said in a tweet on Tuesday.
He said that the police are investigating the matter and all those involved in it will be brought to justice. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
