KARACHI: Karachi citizens have reportedly caught and tortured a man who appeared in a viral harassment video from the Samanabad area, ARY News reported on Thursday.
Another woman’s harassment video had gone viral on social media a few days ago. The incident reportedly took place in Karachi’s Samanabad area, involving a motorcyclist who sells bakery items on local streets.
The footage showed the man standing on a street beside his motorcycle and he suddenly grabbed a woman passing through the street. The woman resisted and ran away from the scene.
The locals identified the culprit who appeared in the viral video and subjected him to torture. Later, they took the culprit to a local bakery owner who decided to let him go after scolding him.
The woman harassment incidents are continuously rising in Karachi and it is the second incident reported in the Samanabad area since August.
