An assistant sub-inspector of the Gujranwala police was arrested for repeatedly slapping a woman in front of her parents on Tuesday.
“The woman had left her house without informing her parents,” a police officer claimed. “Her parents had registered a missing person complaint earlier this week.”
When the police found the woman, they asked her to return home but she refused. At this, ASI Ali Akbar manhandled her.
A video of the incident has since gone viral on social media which made netizens go into an uproar against the law enforcer.
It shows the officer repeatedly slapping her while her parents stood there witnessing the barbarism.
After the video went viral, the Gujranwala police chief took notice of the incident suspending the ASI, and ordering his arrest.
The matter is currently under investigation.
