‘It was all Ayesha’s idea,’ says Rambo after being arrested in the Minar-e-Pakistan assault case. Rambo, TikToker Ayesha Akram’s partner, claimed innocence, claiming that it was not his choice to take the social media sensation to Minar-e-Pakistan after authorities arrested him for ‘blackmailing’ the victim. The development happened as a result of Ayesha Akram’s U-turn, in which she blamed her partner, Rambo, for the entire incident happened on Independence Day.
Rambo, according to his original statement, denied taking Ayesha to the park, claiming that it was not his decision. The accused claimed in a video statement that the TikTok singer was assaulted and manhandled by the heated crowd. In his version of events, he stated that he got Ayesha Akram out of Minar-e-Pakistan with much difficulty and ended up in jail for saving the girl.’ Rambo said towards the conclusion of the video that another person was going to visit Minar-e-Pakistan with Ayesha, but he canceled the trip at the last minute owing to his brother’s death.
Punjab police took action in response to Ayesha Akram’s allegation, in which she accused Rambo of blackmailing her. She also discussed paying Rambo, who heads a ‘TikTok gang,’ Rs1 million. During separate operations in the provincial capital on Friday, police detained seven individuals, including Amir Sohail nicknamed Rambo. Cops also staged a raid in Rawalpindi to apprehend a guy named Badshah, but he escaped.
Rambo had intended to visit Iqbal Park on Independence Day, according to the allegation. He and his coworkers also shot some inappropriate films of her. Previously, the TikToker said that Rambo came from a poor family and that she helped him financially and treated him as though he were a younger brother.
On Independence Day, Ayesha and her companions were allegedly harassed and physically attacked by a throng in Lahore’s Greater Iqbal Park. According to the victim’s complaint, she and her friends were filming a video near Minar-e-Pakistan when they were attacked by a crowd of 400 people. In the footage, the perpetrators can be seen laughing at Ayesha Akram and using abusive language. The assailants had surrounded her, yanked her clothing off, and molested her. According to the footage, despite the efforts of a few men to save her, the mob of offenders was so large that she was fighting desperately to avoid attacks.
Following that, police in Lahore filed a complaint against hundreds of unidentified persons for assaulting and stealing from Ayesha Akram. According to the FIR filed at the Lorry Adda police station, the complainant and six friends were filming a video near Minar-e-Pakistan on Independence Day when 300 to 400 people “attacked” them. She and her companions had worked hard to get away from the crowd, she explained. According to the FIR, the park’s security guard opened the entry to the ring around Minar-e-Pakistan after seeing the scene.
“The crowd, on the other hand, was huge, and people were scaling the fence and approaching us. People pressed and pulled on me to the point that my clothes were torn. Several more tried to help me, but the crowd was too huge, and they proceeded to throw me into the air “She stated this.
The FIR was filed under Pakistan Penal Code sections 354 A (attack or use of criminal force on a lady and stripping her of her clothing), 382 (theft after preparation made for inflicting death, pain, or restraint to accomplish the crime), 147 (rioting), and 149 (unlawful assembly).
Following the event, Iqrar ul Hassan and Yasir Shami interviewed the girl, and all Pakistani celebrities, as well as citizens and politicians, protested in her support. Not only this, but Prime Minister Imran Khan also took note of the situation. Now, whether this entire situation is self-inflicted or pre-planned, it has the potential to disrupt the entire country. People are perplexed when it comes to identifying the true perpetrator in these sorts of situations. They also divert attention away from the real incidents and tragedies that are taking place.
