Later, Zulfiqar, the father of the victims, Aisha Zulfiqar, 12, and Laiba Zulfiqar, 7, had lodged a complaint with the police. He told that his elder and younger daughters were students of class two and one respectively.
The complainant said that his daughters studied in Abu Bakar’s tuition academy. However, for the past two-three days, they were unwilling to go there. When the father asked his daughters the reason behind it, they told that their teacher tortured and humiliated them on September 12. Later, the complaint came to know that the video of his daughters being thrashed was recorded too and it had gone viral on the internet.
