A man from Lahore has been arrested for violently attacking a person near Lahore’s Cavalry ground, two days after the video of the incident went viral on social media.
Though the victim in the video could not be identified, however, police arrested the attacker identified as Aqeel Mirza after tracing him via SUV’s license plate number.
The video became public after someone recorded the incident apparently sitting in the car, who watched the whole thing happening.
The video shows a man violently attacking the victim on the median near the Cavalry Ground traffic light. He kicked him in the head multiple times and also threatened him with a gun.
Just saw this on Facebook and I have no words.
Location is Cavalry Ground, Lahore.
