ISLAMABAD – You might remember the incidence where Islamabad police arrested a group of 50 men and women from a “dance party” at Hotel Ambassador in Sector G-5, Islamabad.
The sources privy to the matter revealed that the raid had been conducted on the orders of Assistant Commissioner Captain Shoaib Ali in the late hours of the night.
According to the police, they detained 34 men and 16 women dancing, playing loud music while smoking tobacco and sheesha.
Officers booked the participants for “obscene acts and songs” and for violating the loudspeaker and tobacco control laws in the country.
Following the news, a video went viral on social media which apparently showed the faces of the alleged participants.
Some clips from the video showed how the police was treating the participants. Faces of each of the arrested individuals were also shown.
These videos were probably released to gain public sympathy and to controversialize the police. However, it was later found to be a fake video
Many Pakistanis over social media shared it extensively, criticizing the behavior of the police towards the people in the video.
However, it became apparent after some time that things were not as they seemed to be. It has now been proven that the video was of another incident and from another place (either Saudi Arabia or Yemen).
