Actor Omair Rana breaks silence on sexual harassment allegations

Actor Omair Rana who was earlier accused of sexual harassment by students of Lahore Grammar school (LGS) has finally given his two cents on the allegations levelled against him.

Taking to Twitter, the ‘Pyar Ke Sadqay’ actor said: “At the same time the dignity and respect of individuals must not be falsely tainted. The law provides remedies for all and I intend to take all steps necessary for the vindication of my constitutional and human rights and to protect myself,” he tweeted.

He further adds, “For those who publish and fail to remove libellous material against me with an unconditional apology to me I will be approaching FIA under the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act.”

Earlier this month, Omair was accused of alleged sexual misconduct when students of LGS 1A1 where he taught drama class started coming out with stories of sexual harassment involving certain teachers.

Later, the school terminated those who were allegedly involved, and suspended two other members namely the main accused Omair’s wife Maira Omair Rana (who was part of school administration) and Rubina Shakil for turning a blind eye to the harassment cases brought before them.
