KARACHI    : A video has emerged showing a woman slap an Airport Security Force [ASF] official at Jinnah International Airport in Karachi.

According to sources, the woman identified as Ruqaiya Soomro, an employee in the HR department of Pakistan International Airline [PIA], allegedly reacted after she was harassed by the guard in plain-clothes.

Sources within the ASF, however, claim that Soomro was stopped by the guard at the entrance after her entry card was found to have expired.
