LAHORE: The Lorry Adda police arrested two burqa-clad young men from the Greater Iqbal Park for harassing women and lodged a case against them.

Identified as Subhan and Usman, the young men entered an area specified for visiting women and children in the park and tried to grope some of them.

The women raised an alarm and informed police through 15. Guards of the Greater Iqbal Park acted swiftly, caught the suspects and handed them over to police.

Following a sexual harassment case of a young woman at the park last year, the administration had earmarked an area in the park for women.
