In the viral video, the private security guard can be seen talking to a woman. He seems to get angry and slaps the woman hard enough for her to fall to the ground. The guard proceeds to kick the woman’s face as she lays unconscious on the floor, while another security guard attempts to stop him but is not successful.
Union officials were also allegedly present at the main gate of the residential area at the time of the incident. Sources said that violence against people in the apartment building had become routine and residents fear the union officials.
According to sources, there are several apartments on the upper floor of the building that have been illegally occupied.
The police said the victim approached Shahrah-e-Faisal Police Station regarding the violence. She told officials that she was having a dispute with the union of the apartment building. However, she refused to file a case against the security guard.
