FAISALABAD – The Faisalabad incident involving four women, who were tortured and paraded, has taken a turn as the victims spotted ripping off their clothes in a bid to threaten the shopkeeper to avoid being caught in the robbery.
The CCTV footage of the incident surfaced on social media in which three women can be seen shoplifting items from an electric store. The actual clip of the incident that garnered international attention gives the impression that these women undressed to threaten the shopkeeper.
