Rickshaw girls’ molestation case: Lahore police identifies culprit
Lahore police Saturday 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 yesterday.
According to the 24News HD TV channel, after the identification of one of the 12 accused, the task of arresting him was handed over to the Lahore CIA police.
The Lahore 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.
The motorcycle rickshaw was travelling on Circular Road near Greater Iqbal Park.
