Sports complex in Lahore's posh area rocked by allegations of sexual harassment

LAHORE – In another case of alleged harassment, a girl came forward with a harrowing story of 'mistreatment' at the 5th Generation Sports Complex.

A social media user, Syeda Mehreen Shah, took to her social media handle to share the story behind the alleged harassment at one of the top-notch swimming facilities in a posh area of Lahore.

In her video message, Shah said she visited the 5th Generation Sports Complex around 2pm, shortly after the ladies' timing.

As she entered the pool, a trainer named Daniyal came and stared at her creepily, making her hassled. The man then continued staring at her legs until she confronted him.

“Do you have any problem,” the alleged victim asked the man, and he left with a reply in negative. He then returned as soon as the girl resumed swimming.

The trainer then asked her to remove her shorts, saying it was against the complex policy. He then started behaving rudely as she refused to take off her shorts.

Sharing her ordeal, she said she approached the general manager of the sports complex and he was another ill-mannered man, who insisted she should remove her shorts in line with the sports complex's rules.

Sharing her side of the story in a group named Voice of Customers, Shah said she questioned the management about the sports complex's "absurd rules" before taking the fee back, as she had been a member for more than three months.

Meanwhile, she shared a screenshot of her conversation with another girl who mentioned the owner was no different than the front desk people.
