RAWALPINDI: Hundreds of young men rushed to a building on the Tipu Road for job interviews on Tuesday, but later turned violent after they were told the job advertisement concerned was fake.

The infuriated young men threw stones at the Fauji Towers, the building named in the fake ad, causing damage to its windowpanes.

According to eyewitnesses, a large number of young people began congregating outside the facility at around 12.30pm, apparently awaiting their interview calls for the recruitment in Bahrain police. However, as time went by and their number grew, they started to get furious amid no response from the supposed employer.

It all started when some individuals placed ads on social media asking interested candidates to visit the Fauji Tower on Tuesday for the selection and final interview to get a job in the Bahrain police.

The social media’s message caught the attention of the candidates from different parts of the country, who gathered outside the building.
