Pakistan constable slaps woman reporter, inquiry ordered


A woman TV reporter was slapped by a constable in Karachi in a government office, an act caught on the security camera that went viral on social media, forcing authorities in Pakistan to order a probe. Interior minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan ordered the inquiry after a female anchor for a local television channel was slapped by a Frontier Corps constable at the office of the National Authority for Database Registration (NADRA), officials said.

“Minister Khan has been informed about the incident and he has ordered an inquiry. A complete footage of the incident has been dispatched to him,” officials were quoted as saying in the local media. The constable was also seen resorting to aerial firing to scare away the people who were present in the NADRA office at that time.
