A woman who assaulted a salesperson at a shopping mall in Lahore was released on bail on Wednesday. 

Sadaf was arrested by the Factory Area police on Tuesday after a video of the assault went viral on social media. In the video, the woman can be seen dragging a saleswoman with her hair and forcing her to apologise.

The police said that the incident occurred on August 5 at Packages Mall on Walton Road. The woman had gone to a makeup shop to buy cosmetics for herself. She asked a saleswoman for a lipstick first and then a mirror. The saleswoman, however, told her that she can’t give her a mirror. This enraged Sadaf and she started assaulting the salesperson.

The suspect appeared before a judicial magistrate on Wednesday. The court then approved her bail.

The owners of the shopping mall registered a case against the woman.

    On what grounds the silly court accepted her bail….it’s a failure of judicial system….this judicial system is not delivering justice to the society…..higher judicial authority should take notice. And question the dgujr accepting bail.this is not justice.

    Don’t see “انصاف” in this case also. Did the suspect deserve such type of justice? Total disappointment.
    This will do nothing but aggravate the feelings of deprivation of class who don’t have powers to buy justice. While we are trying to raise voice against human rights violation in kashmir, what the message others will receive from this?

    This is a hopeless justice system of our beloved Quaid’s dreams. May Allah have mercy on our country and may justice prevail.

    Commentators should read relevant law. It’s a bailable offence. Arrest was actually not required and is not a mandatory requirement unless ordained in law. The woman will appear before a judge and be tried with fair chance to prove her innocence and will have right to appeal. So will the prosecution. Keeping her in jail would be akin to pronouncing her guilty without a trial. Let’s not become a lynch mob. I think it is unacceptable in any society to resort to physical or verbal violence for any reason and if this woman actually did this unprovoked then she must get her punishment.
