A disturbing video has gone viral showing hundreds of Pakistani men assaulting a young woman in the country’s metropolitan city Lahore.
Newsweek reports the incident took place on Saturday near the national monument of Minar-e-Pakistan, where a mob of hundreds gathered to celebrate Pakistan’s Independence Day. The unidentified woman said she was filming a TikTok video when a crowd of up to 400 men attacked her, tearing away her clothes while she attempted to escape.
Footage of the incident has since garnered hundreds of thousands of views on social media.
Lahore police registered a case on Tuesday against hundreds of unidentified persons for assaulting and stealing from the woman and her six companions. Lahore DIG Operations Sajid Kiyani has ordered the superintendent of police to take “immediate legal action” against the suspects involved in the incident, according to India Today.
“The suspects should be traced with the help of the footage,” Kiyani said in a statement provided by police. Those who “violated women’s honor and harassed them will be brought within the ambit of the law.”
“It speaks to a rot in our society,” he added. “Those responsible must be brought to justice. The women of Pakistan feel insecure and it is all our responsibility to ensure safety and equal rights to all.”
TikTok has been banned several times in Pakistan for allegedly permitting “inappropriate content” on its platform.
