A video of a man thrashing children has gone viral in Pakistan after it was posted on social media recently. The incident occurred in Punjab.
Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has taken notice of the incident of torturing children in Okara and sought a report from the district police officer (DPO).
He ordered for bringing the culprits to justice at the earliest.
Justice will be ensured for the affected children and such incidents can not be tolerated at any cost, the CM added.
The CM also directed the administrative and police officials to visit the residence of the affected children immediately.
Soon after, the man was arrested on Saturday for brutally thrashing three minors in the viral video.
The incident took place in village 44-L in Okara, Express Tribune reported.
In the video, the suspect, identified as Yaqoob, was seen tying the children upside down beating them over their insistence to meet their mother. The suspect, identified as an uncle of the children, was asked to look after the children.

Yaqoob undressed the kids and assaulted them with a shoe.
Police have arrested the man and a case has been registered against him.
Okara Deputy Commissioner Marriam Khan and Assistant Commissioner Omar Maqbool visited the victims and assured their family that the district administration is standing by their side, according to Government of Punjab tweets.
They added that they will extend all possible support to the victims and their family.
In a subsequent video recorded by a media outlet, the man is seeking forgiveness for his actions saying that he regrets his actions but he was trying to discipline the children while they were being mischievous.
