Pakistani YouTuber Molestation case, what we know so far

In a viral video that made rounds on the internet, hundreds of men were seen throwing the woman in air, dragging her and even going tearing her clothes. Politicians and several citizens of the country condemned what was referred to as “sexual terrorism” by many. The Lahore Police had registered a case against 400 unidentified men for assaulting the girl and her friends. Later, an arrest of 161 men was made in connection with the case.

A Punjab government official said to PTI on Tuesday, September 7 that the Camp Jail in Lahore conducted an identification parade of all the arrested suspects during the last few days under the supervision of a judicial magistrate. Since the girl and her friends could identify only 6 of the suspects, the police told the magistrate that the rest of the suspects were no longer required. Hence, the 155 suspects were subsequently released from jail.

According to reports, the six suspects identified have been sent to judicial custody till September 9. Some of the accused claimed that the woman was herself responsible for everything that had happened. They claimed that she herself invited them to the spot to make videos.
