Actor Omair Rana has decided to approach the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) over the sexual harassment allegations brought against him in the Lahore Grammar School scandal.

Omair Rana was a teacher at LGS and some students came forward with these allegations against him.

It was almost a month ago when Pyar Ke Sadqay star was accused of inappropriate behaviour by a former LGS student in a series of Instagram stories which were later shared by a Twitter user on the micro-blogging website, and the issue went viral over the social media.

In a series of tweets, the actor stated his point of view over falsely accusing someone over a heinous crime like sexual harassment.

“Sexual harassment is a heinous crime and should be treated with the seriousness that it deserves. At the same time, the dignity and respect of individuals must not be falsely tainted. The law provides remedies for all and I intend to take all steps necessary”, wrote Omair Rana. 

In his next tweet, he added, “For the vindication of my constitutional and human rights and to protect myself. For those who publish and fail to remove libellous material against me with an unconditional apology to me, I will be approaching FIA under the prevention of electronic crimes act”.

the District Education Authority of Lahore, in June, had formed a three-member committee to investigate the teachers at the Lahore Grammar School 1A1 accused of harassing students.
