Bogiwal, Lahore: In a case of mistaken identity, a woman in Pakistan, who was with her minor son, was thrashed by an angry mob after they mistook her as a child abductor.

According to a report in the Dawn, the woman identified as Sadia, was seriously injured after being beaten up by people, because her 'complexion did not match with her son'.

The woman caught public attention when she tried to sneak into a house to steal. People saw her with a minor boy and thought that she might have abducted him from somewhere. As the boy did not resemble the woman, the mob started thrashing her and was later handed over to the police.

After investigation, cops found that the minor boy was indeed her son and set her free. The woman, however, refused to register a complaint against the mob.

This is not the first time a woman was beaten up by mob in Pakistan. Many women have previously been thrashed by mobs on suspicion of child kidnapping or trafficking, who later turned out to be innocent.
