In a grave incident, a Pakistani female TikToker along with her companions was sexually harassed and assaulted allegedly by a mob in Lahore’s Greater Iqbal Park on August 14, the country's Independence Day.

The victim stated in her complaint lodged with the Lari Adda police station that she was filming a video near Minar-e-Pakistan then along with her friends when a mob of around 400 people attacked them, reports The Express Tribune.

She alleged that the mob picked her up and started tossing her in the air. “I was stripped and my clothes were torn apart,” she said.

A video of the incident has gone viral on social media with citizens expressing anger over the actions of the men in the video.

The victim while narrating her ordeal said she cried for help but no one came to her rescue.

She also alleged that her gold ornaments, cash and mobile phone were also snatched by the mob.

Police have launched a search for the accused after registering a first information report (FIR).

Lahore DIG Operations Sajid Kiyani ordered the superintendent of police (SP) to take "immediate legal action" against the suspects involved in the incident, according to the PTI.

Those who "violated women's honour and harassed them will be brought within the ambit of the law", he said.

In a similar incident in June, an elderly woman was subjected to torture and sexual assault by influential people in Punjab’s Mazaffargarh to avenge her son’s love marriage.

According to police, the incident took place within the limits of Alipur Police Station in Fatehpur, where Nasir's in-laws, who were enraged over his love marriage to their daughter, kidnapped, tortured and tried to rape his mother.

The accused not only tortured the 50-year-old woman but also tore down her clothes, dragged her and burned her half-naked body with cigarette butts

The popular Chinese short video app has been banned several times in Pakistan for allegedly allowing "inappropriate content" on its platform.
