Police yet to arrest the culprit

Lahore police are yet to arrest the man who has harassed the girl near Greater Iqbal Park on independence Day, media reported.

However, a case was registered at the Lari Adda police station on the SHO’s complaint, after witnessing the incident through the video.

As per FIR, the incident took place on Circular Road, near gat 1 of the Graeter Iqbal Park.

The report further states approximately 10-12 “morally unrestrained” men who were riding motorcycles, harassed two women with a child seated in between them.
