The police produced accused Abdul Rehman, Usman, Atif and Irfan before the court. All these accused were identified by the Rickshaw girl in the jail
The accused were arrested by the Lahore police through video scanning.
Earlier, the police claimed to identify one of the 12 accused involved in making video and molesting two girls sitting in a motorcycle rickshaw near Lorri Adda at Circular Road on Pakistan Independence Day.
The police of the Lorry Adda area have registered a case under non-bailable sections against 12 boys who were involved in molesting and shouting at the Chungchi Rickshaw girls.
During the incident, some of the accused made a video of their misbehaving with the girls and two of them move on the rickshaw and molested the girls that could be seen in a video.
The police have decided to get a forensic test of the video for the proper identification of the accused persons by tracing them from their faces and the motorcycles registration number plates.
Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and Inspector General of Punjab Inam Ghani had sought a progress report on the incident.
In the video, it could be seen that a man in a white shirt misbehaved with one of the girls and fled away. The other girl even took off her shoe to deal with any further interference.
