Officials of the Airport Security Force (ASF) have come down hard on a female staffer after a video of her lip-synching to a song went viral.

According to sources, the authorities have decided to shave off the service of the female employee, who has been performing duty at the Sialkot airport for the past two years.

After the video began doing the rounds on social media, the ASF ordered a probe into the matter.

Sources said the employee will not be given increments or perks for two years for the violation of its code of conduct.

Polish girl’s Independence Day dance on PIA plane irks NAB

It is also believed that the female employee has assured the ASF that she will not engage in the same kind of behavior again.

Back on August 13, a video of a Polish girl dancing on a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane to celebrate the country’s Independence Day went viral. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) came down hard on the national flag carrier over the episode.

Draped in the Pakistani flag, Eva zu Beck can be seen doing her own rendition of the popular Kiki challenge based on a song by Canadian singer Drake.

According to sources, NAB chairman Javed Iqbal took notice of the incident. Iqbal had called for action to be taken against CEO of PIA over abuse of his authority, the sources added.

    I don’t think there is an issue of her making that video privately. The issue here is use of social media. She should now be terminated under ‘code of conduct’ as she has lost the respect among her fellow colleagues. She will be a distraction for others, considering she is involved in a sensitive nature of work. Foolish of her to do such video and post it.

    In fact she will find work in drama / showbiz industry straight away.

    She is pretty no doubt! Recommend

    the state/private employers should not have jurisdiction to impose morality on employees or citizens for actions that are not against explicit rules or codes of conduct, or against the law. she’s seemingly only lip synching to a song. what kind of joyless society does ASF want people to live in?

    This country is becoming a religious state like Afghanistan under the Taliban.

    What wrong has this women done? Does her job contract say that she cannot use social media? What ever she does in her private life is her own matter, why is ASF getting involved in it? If she was doing this during her official duty times then it is another matter.Recommend

    Right decision. A policeman was suspended after his video went viral of dancing in the uniform. The rules should be same and women should stop thinking that they are special Recommend
