She continued, “Aisa kaisay ho sakta kisi nay tum par attempt na kia ho (How is it possible that no one made a move on you). Hum tumhay he kaam or paisay kiun dain jab yaha larkian kaam ke liye sonay ko tayar hain (Why should we give you work and money when girls are ready to sleep for work here).”
