A new twist to the story
However, another video has emerged on social media that has given a new twist to the incident. A new CCTV footage shows women tearing off their clothes apart themselves to escape from the men who surrounded them. In order to escape the possible arrest, the netizen says women harmed themselves.
While a few men ran after the women to catch them, other men locked up one woman in the shop after catching her. The women then continued to fight with men.
The Twitter user sharing the video said: “Thanks to the CCTV Camera footage which prevented an Aurat March! Not all the time men do wrong. Yes, there are some sick people but we should get to the facts and then raise a concern. We should have learned something out of Minar e Pakistan incident.”
As per the reports, five men had been arrested on the charges of assaulting, stripping, and beating women by the Police.
