Turkish actress Esra Bilgiç has criticised the Lahore Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Umer Sheikh for victim-blaming the woman who was ganged raped in the motorway incident. Esra Bilgiç, who essays the role of Halime Sultan in the series Turkish series ‘Diriliş: Ertuğrul ‘shared Umer Sheikh’s video on her Instagram story, she said, “Women can drive alone or with their children. The only thing you need to do is to provide security.”The CCPO drew trenchant criticism from almost every quarters after he pontificated that the survivor had failed to take due precautions before setting out for her journey, in remarks to a private TV channel. “What surprises me is that, being a mother of three (young) children and the only driver (unaccompanied by an adult male), why would she not take the GT Road that has population around it? If nothing else, she should have checked her fuel…,” he said. This put the whole nation into shock. People from all over the country protested at the horrific incident and raised their voice against the cold-hearted statements by the Lahore CCPO Umer Sheikh.
