Usman Mirza arrested for assaulting, stripping couple naked in Islamabad (VIDEO)

ISLAMABAD – Police in the federal capital Tuesday claimed to apprehend the culprit, Usman Mirza, who was seen assaulting, stripping naked a couple that sparked outrage on social media.

Reports quoting sources suggest that an accomplice of the suspect, who is identified as Farhan, was also detained following police action while the third accused, who also appeared in the harrowing clip, is still on the run.

Earlier, five to six men can be seen keeping the victims in custody under gunpoint in the video clip which went viral on social media. The culprits can be seen stripping the man and the woman naked while threatening them. A report also claimed that the suspects were also performing ‘vulgar acts’ with the young couple.

The first information report cited the incident occurred within the limits of Golra police station at an apartment building in sector E-11/2.

The disturbing clip then sparked outrage across Pakistani Twitter, with #ArrestUsmanMirza appearing on the top trends. “The video of violence against a woman and a man went viral on social media. Islamabad police immediately utilised all resources to arrest the accused in a few hours, registered an FIR, and initiated legal action” the federal law enforcers said in a tweet.

Police officials also told newsmen that the Usman and another accomplice will be produced in court today.

Ruling party lawmaker Maleeka Bokhari also shared a tweet that the Islamabad IG is leading the investigation.

"I have received numerous messages of women feeling unsafe and angry. The State is here to protect you & will not spare such barbarians," the MNA captioned the post.

Islamabad Deputy Commissioner Hamza Shafqat also confirmed the arrest of Mirza and accomplices. He requested social media users to delete the videos which show the ID of victims.

On the other hand, some reports quoting sources claimed that the clip is few months old but surfaced on social media on July 6 (Tuesday).

The prime suspect Usman Mirza, the Islamabad-based real-estate owner who also runs an automobile rental company, is a history-sheeter who also used to share short clips of modern weapons on social platforms. In another clip which was uploaded in May, he can be heard saying that he will be in jail for 15-20 days but will release very soon.

Social media users have strongly reacted to the heinous incident and it’s the outrage that later switched into a social media campaign to ensure Mirza’s arrest.
