Four female students of Scarsdale School Lahore in Punjab’s capital have tortured and humiliated their classmate girl. The girl was reportedly a student at Scarsdale International School in Lahore who had been beaten up because she had refused to partake in her classmate’s illicit activity—drinking alcohol—and had instead told her family about it. In reaction, Jannat Malik, Umaima Malik, and Noor Rehman ganged up on the girl, brutally beating her to the ground and then torturing her for some time on a private campus.

It may be recalled that the video of the incident had gone viral a day earlier, after which the Punjab Police registered a report of the incident and started investigating the matter. Police of Lahore’s Defence Housing Authority (DHA) had filed the case on the complaint of the victim’s father Imran Younis.
According to the FIR, the victim’s father said his daughter was studying in a private school where school girls attacked him, and one of the girls who was shot had a dagger in her hand. Imran Younus, the victim’s father, argued that one of the attackers was a girl boxer who punched his daughter in the face because she was injured.
He further said in the FIR that another girl tried strangulating the victim. The video clip on social media to take legal action against the attacker girls is enough evidence. In the FIR, the father, Imran Younus, alleged that the main suspect involved in the attack was a drug addict and wanted to give drugs to his daughter too, but the daughter refused to take drugs.
Father Imran Younus said his daughter had also recorded a video of her fellow students using drugs in the school. According to the FIR, Imran Younis further said that later the daughter showed me the video clip, so I shared the video with the suspect’s father, after which the girls (suspects) got angry and planned a murderous attack on the daughter.
He told the police that his daughter was deeply shocked after the incident, but after the video went viral on social media, he and his family faced mental torture.
