he was overwhelmed by their combined force.

Three Pakistani teenage girls assaulted a salesman over alleged harassment.

The incident happened at a petrol station in the Garden Town area of Lahore.

Following the incident, a case of harassment was filed, leading to the arrest of two salesmen.

However, after hearing arguments from both parties, the court dismissed the case and subsequently released both salesmen.

The incident took place in the early hours of July 7, 2024, and CCTV footage of the incident has emerged, shedding light on the events.

In the footage, three girls can be seen standing at the cash counter of the tuck shop, holding coffee mugs.

The young salesman and cashier are present at the counter. During this, the girls can be observed engaging in an angry conversation with the salesman.

As the footage unfolds, the three girls enter the area behind the counter, and one of them grabs the salesman by the neck and slaps him.

Subsequently, all three girls began to physically assault the salesman.

The salesman attempted to defend himself by grabbing one of the girls. However, he was overwhelmed by their combined force.

Witnessing the distressing scene, an elderly customer shouted in a bid to stop the altercation.

The girls then left the premises and proceeded to report the incident to the police.

According to Lahore Police, a case of harassment was registered against the salesmen based on the complaint filed by a girl named Iman Zahra.

Iman Zahra claimed that the salesman, Yusuf, along with the cashier, made obscene gestures towards the girls.

However, the plaintiff argued that the police wrongly included allegations of harassment in FIR, which ultimately led to the dismissal of the case.

The incident has raised concerns about the misuse of power and influence, as well as the importance of conducting thorough investigations to ensure justice.

One asked: “Where are the feminists now?”

Another wrote: “Because of girls like them, the real harassment cases get buried.”
