In a strange incident of harassment, contact numbers of Sindh’s Grade-17 female officials leaked to inappropriate websites
The harassment victims had challenged illegal promotions in the Social Welfare department.
The contact numbers of more than two dozen high-ranking female officials who had challenged out of turn promotions in the Social Welfare Department Sindh have been shared on various inappropriate websites.
In a peculiar harassment incident, the phone numbers of 25 Grade-17 female officers of the social welfare department have been leaked to indecent websites after they challenged the department’s illegal promotions.
The female officers have written letters to the Chief Secretary Sindh, Syed Mumtaz Ali Shah, the Secretary of Social Welfare Sindh, Nawaz Shaikh, and other high officials of the provincial government concerning the issue.
The Secretary of Social Welfare confirmed the incident saying,” the phone numbers of only those female officials have been sent to immoral websites, who had filed an appeal in the court against unlawful promotions in the SWD Sindh.”
The harassment victims in their letter said that they were receiving indecent videos, images and messages from different WhatsApp groups.
“These videos and photos have ruined our personal life,” stated the affected officers.
Shaikh added, “It is a serious crime. People who are found guilty will be dealt with sternly. We have contacted the FIA Cyber Crimes Cell and the Sindh Police to help us over the matter.”
