The news of arrest of the Lahore Motorway Gang Rape culprits termed fake
LAHORE - A fake twitter account of Inspector General (IG) Punjab Inam Ghani has been spreading misinformation on social media regarding the recent Motorway rape incident.
After the incident was reported and a national outcry initiated, IG Punjab Inam Ghani said that all possible resources would be utilized and the perpetrators of the heinous crime would be arrested soon.
Meanwhile, a fake account in the name of Inspector General Punjab Inam Memon tweeted that a big development has been made in the investigation of the motorway rape incident. It wrongly stated that two people, who had used the victim’s ATM card, have been arrested.
