On Sunday, a video had emerged of a young man beating up a security guard at a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station in Peshawar after he was asked to put on a mask.
According to a spokesperson for the BRT, the security guard posted at the entrance to a BRT station had asked the youngster with no mask on to adhere to Covid-19 guidelines by wearing one. He got furious and started beating up the guard.
Footage shows the youth getting into a fistfight with the guard after a heated exchange. Later, an unidentified man can be seen jumping in, pounding the youngster with his fists.
