Social media is a powerful tool if used in the right way. Aqeel Mirza, the assaulter who was seen torturing a common man after coming out of his luxury car has been put behind the bars after his video went viral on social media.
Lahore Police has arrested Aqeel Mirza who kicked Gulshan Shehzad and pointed his gun at him in anger. According to Aqeel’s statement, he got angry when the driver of the car that hit his Fortuner misbehaved and beat him on the road.
Here’s the video:

The case of Aqeel Mirza proves that banks and other corporate entities need to properly vet their employees and be vigilant about their social behaviour. Each employer hiring senior personnel risks having their repute tarnished by reckless behaviour.
