LAHORE – A policeman in Lahore was arrested for performing a vulgar act in front of a woman and abusing her while she was taken into custody in a viral video.
The video shows some police officials are arresting the woman and his two sons when a trainee assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of the Shadbagh police station hurls abuses and exposes himself.
Operations DIG Sajid Kayani has suspended the cop.
Later, the Punjab police issued a statement on Twitter saying the policeman has been suspended, a case was registered against him and he was arrested on the orders of Punjab IG Inam Ghani.
“He will be dismissed from service and convicted too. What is a crime for others is a crime for a police officer too,” read the statement.
