KARACHI: Phone numbers of 25 female commissioned officers were leaked days after they filed a plea at the Sindh High Court seeking promotions.
They women are posted at the Sindh Social Welfare Department and they filed the petition after they were not being promoted despite their claims of being on merit.
Samaa TV website quoted the officers as saying that their numbers were leaked on social media platforms and indecent websites even before the first hearing of the case began.
They said since then they had been receiving inappropriate phone calls and messages from unknown national and international numbers. They said strange people were harassing them through social media platforms as well.
The commissioned officers have lodged a joint complaint with the cybercrime wing of the Federal Investigation Agency and wrote a letter to the Sindh chief secretary to look into the matter.
