Female stalking should be made offence: proposes Law Ministry


The law ministry led by Dr Farogh Naseem has proposed to make ‘female stalking’ an offence in the Criminal Law Reforms draft presented in Federal Cabinet.

According to the proposal, Section 345B should be inserted in Pakistan Panel Code which says; “If a woman complains to the officer in charge of a police station that she is being stalked by a man, the officer shall issue a notice to the man and upon finding his explanation to be unsatisfactory, through a written order, shall issue a caution to the man warning him to stay away from the complainant on such terms and conditions as deemed fit,

“However, if the man violates the order of caution, he shall be guilty of an offence punishable with imprisonment up to three months and fine for an amount of Rs100,000,” the proposed PPC section reads.
