Video of ‘Alkaram Textile Mills workers’ being beaten sparks anger in Pakistan

Karachi: Thousands of people have seen a purported video of security officer beating workers of Alkaram Textile Mills.

Captions accompanying the video claim that the man beating the workers is Captain (retd) Mukhtar, the security officer of Alkaram Textile Mills.

The video has sparked anger in Pakistan, with people demanding action against the security officer.

“Can legal action be taken against this man,” asked senior journalist Iftikhar Ahmed while commenting on the viral video.

Social media users said the men should be handed over to police if they had done anything illegal instead of being subjected to torture.
