The bank employee identified as Usman Gohar has also been dismissed from his job by the bank and raids are being conducted to arrest him, he added in another Twitter post.
Faysal Bank confirmed that Gohar had been fired in a tweet.
Faysal Bank strongly condemns such individual act of unprofessional behavior and #workplaceharassment by an employee, which is contrary to the strong value system, ethical standards and professional work environment being maintained by the Bank for all its employees. #UsmanGohar pic.twitter.com/heykyjDHBc— Faysal Bank Limited (@Faysalbankltd) November 7, 2020
It denied that he was employed as a branch manager.
The action against the bank employee was taken after a video of him harassing and inappropriately touching a woman inside the bank went viral on social media. People speculated that the woman was also employed at the bank.
People called for him to be fired from the bank.
The Islamabad DC told SAMAA Digital that they are forensically analysing the video to ascertain whether it is recent.
Faysal Bank was in the news recently after it made abayas compulsory for female employees.
