In the video, the woman is seen getting physical with the senior officer, who exercises excellent restraint in the face of a violent citizen. She also tries to snatch his baton.
Besides, the driver is seen driving the car regardless of orders to stop. Both the woman and driver are seen making videos, supposedly to portray themselves as a victim of police brutality.
Meanwhile, the victim, DSP Ishtiaq Hussain Arain, has lodged a case against the woman and her brother, who is a serving officer in the Pakistan Navy.

Asad arrived at the scene wearing his official uniform. The Navy officer also mistreated him. Anam and Asad fled the scene after a while, threatening him to get ready to face serious consequences.
