The victim stated in her complaint lodged with the Lari Adda police station that she was filming a video near Minar-e-Pakistan on August 14 along with her friends when a mob of around 400 people attacked them.

She alleged that the mob picked her up and started tossing her in the air. “I was stripped and my clothes were torn apart,” she said.

She also claimed that her gold jewelry, cash and mobile phone were also snatched by the mob.

The police began to search the defendant after registering the first information report (FIR).

In a similar incident in June, an elderly woman was subjected to torture and sexual assault by influential people in Punjab’s Mazaffargarh to avenge her son’s love marriage.

According to the police, the incident occurred within the Alipur Police Station in Fatehpur, where Nasir’s in-laws were kidnapped, tortured and attempted to rape his mother. They were angry at his love marriage with his daughter.

The defendant not only tortured the 50-year-old woman, but also tore her clothes, dragged her, and burned her half-naked body with cigarette butts.
