A girl on Twitter shared how she successfully filed an FIR against the man who harassed her in public:
Hoping that the accused will be held accountable, she further shared how the police tried to dodge the matter by asking her to forgive the man outside of the court, but she refused:
Providing video evidence of the exchange, the girl was adamant that the accused be tried and punished for sexual assault rather than ‘awaaragardi’ that the police were booking him for:
And tweeple are rooting for her:
Super proud of you and shame on our officials who force the survivors and victims to shut up and "forgive" instead of doing their jobs. https://t.co/z4XSVjtjum

Some had no hope:
Bailable offence, the accused will go scot-free till the trial ends. Moreover, the punishment is up-to two years, or fine, or both. In the end, it’s the discretion of the judge as he can reduce the sentence to a minimum of whatever days or months he like.

People were suggesting she involves her family:
Welldone, I hope it will be easier for you during the court sessions.
Just one question, why no one at home knows that?
I suggest to involve your family in all crucial matters of life. https://t.co/Jy5NbsjSIJ

Bravo. This is how these creeps should be treated. I always recommended that such crimes against women in particular and society is general should be incorporated in their CNIC record.
Secondly, we need half of our police force to be women police officers. https://t.co/0tYwi8EamF
