A few days ago, a video went viral on social media. In the video, a man was harassing female students by making obscene gestures. After the video went viral, the man was arrested by the police as the public criticized the University of Peshawar’s administration on social media, reported urdu.siasat.pk.
Campus police have arrested the man, identified as Inam, and are investigating into the incident. The university administration claims that the video, which went viral on social media, is a year old and no such move will be tolerated at the university.

Earlier in February this year, a student was allegedly harassed by a bus driver at Sindh University Jamshoro. Top officials had taken notice and demanded an immediate report, while Rehmatullah Shar, in-charge of the university’s transport department, had lodged an FIR against the bus driver.
This is not the first occurrence of harassment in an educational institute in Pakistan. Several cases of harassment and sexual assault have been reported in the past, and they have gained awareness and traction on social media but have still yielded no tangible results.
