Recently, a story surfaced the internet where a man shared an incident of how his two sons encountered a suspicious activity at Monal Restaurant (Saddar, Rawalpindi). Upon mentioning the details, he said that his two sons went to the washroom where a sweeper who was already present there, asked his two sons some personal questions. Later, he asked them to pose for a picture that he wanted to take but the kids hesitated to do so. After the kids refused to agree, the sweeper threatened them that he will only allow them to leave once they’d agree to be photographed.
Later, when the kids informed their parents and the matter was brought to the management, they asked the sweeper to arrive and he came after good 15 minutes. The kids recognized the sweeper and he was asked to show his mobile phone after which he showed some other phone because the kids remembered the model of the phone.
Here’s what the father had to say:
Child Harassment in Monal
My Sons went to Monal (Saddar, Rawalpindi) Washroom tonite. While they were about to leave the washroom, the sweeper who was already there not only stopped them at the door asked personal questions and asked them to pose for a picture. My sons refused and he stood by the door and threatened them not to let them go outside until they agree for the pic.
When our sons told us, we immediately went to the manager. He called upon the sweeper, who came a good 15 minutes later. Not only the kids identified him but also gave an exact description of the mobile set. However, the sweeper denied the allegations at all and refused that he took any pics. On our insistence, the manager brought 5-6 mobile phones and asked me to check. Of course, the mobile kids saw was missing but the manager and the sweeper were in complete denial of any picture taken.
Now, had the sweeper shown us the mobile and deleted the photos which he had taken, we would have left. But the fact that both manager and sweeper refusing to accept that any such mobile exist shows that there’s definitely something fishy about it. So we called 15 and eventually, police force from Cantt station arrived. They asked us to write an application ( pic attached) and visited the washroom and left with the culprit.
Half an hour later we received a call from the police station that they have investigated the accused and checked his mobile. There’s no evidence. We have categorically told them, that this isn’t the mobile from which he has taken pictures.
Its such a shame that a name like #Monal has staff that is involved in child harassment and their managers are protecting them.
We have taken Child Protection Bureau on board and will be strongly pursuing the case.
The mobile has been recovered and not only it had the kids pictures as claimed by kids, it is full of porn content. The police have confiscated the mobile and child protection bureau would take up the issue with the Monal management and owners now.

The parents did not leave the matter unattended. They called the police right away and only left with the culprit. According to a recent update on the page, it is said that the phone in question was recovered and it contained much pornographic material. The phone solely was owned by sweeper named Khawar.
