Police arrested one of the two accused of sexual harassment on Tuesday. Talking to The Express Tribune, a police official said the incident had occurred within the jurisdiction of Parowa police station in DI Khan.
He quoted the victim’s mother Zeenat Bibi as saying that on July 14 Muhammad Tanveer, a resident of Darkan village, and Mehboob had told her they were taking Ahmed* with them to play cricket in the local playground. When the boy returned home, she found out that the two had instead harassed him sexually and filmed the incident through their phone cameras.
She said they uploaded the video on the internet. The police official added Zeenat filed the FIR only after the video went up.
An investigation was conducted and Tanveer was arrested while search for Mehboob is under way. Both the accused are enrolled at a seminary in Parowa.
