Alex shared the video with the caption, "Words fail me. I cannot even begin to express my disgust with how we have been treated by the Pakistan police and government; it’s horrific, illegal and shameful.

We are currently 3 cyclists navigating our way across Asia by bicycle - during our time in Pakistan we have been harassed by police, assaulted, had our items stolen, our bicycles and property damaged, our bodies injured, and lied to every day - and all this by the police.

When we entered Punjab, the police escort (which we did not request, they are assigned to some overland tourists at random and we are told it’s “mandatory”) became much worse than usual.

We were used to being lied to every day, scammed, and harassed constantly.

But over the following two days we were also assaulted multiple times, again entirely by the police force: against unarmed people on bicycles.

On the morning of the first assault we left our (mandatory-assigned) hotel at midday and cycled to a nearby roadside cafe for breakfast. We already had a police escort with us (24/7), which was fine.
It’s important to note that the location of this cafe was on the N5, which is the Karachi - Lahore road police told us to take because it is “safe”."
