Hundreds of protesters on Tuesday blocked Rawal Road in Rawalpindi as they held a protest against a fake job advertisement on social media that promised police jobs in Bahrain.

The candidates had arrived at a semi-government office to apply for jobs in the Bahrain police, but they resorted to “violent protests” after the advertisement turned out to be fake.

In a fit of rage, the protesters ransacked the reception area of the building. The employees were stranded in the building that was surrounded by angry protesters.

They also blocked Rawal Road and adjoining routes. In a bid to contain the protesters, the Rawalpindi police arrived on the spot and resorted to aerial firing to disperse the protesters. However, the police had to call in reinforcements in the light of a large number of protesters.
