LAKKI MARWAT: The police on Monday claimed to have arrested a man for harssing a group of women, who visited a park near the Lakki Marwat city on the occasion of the Independence Day.

An official said that a party of Lakki Marwat police station sprang into action when a video went viral showing a man hurling abuses on veiled women visiting a park.

“The man also threatened the women to leave the park,” he maintained, saying that besides using inappropriate language the accused also recorded video of this indecent act.

The official said that the cops identified the suspect and arrested him during a raid.

He said that investigation was started after registration of a case against him under relevant sections of law in the Lakki Marwat police station.
