Yesterday, a Saudi girl in her 20’s who calls herself ‘Engle’ went live on Instagram as she was molesting her younger sister.
According to social media users, the young child was about 9 years old, and she was heard hysterically crying while begging her older sister to stop the harassment.
Engle’s video has been widely circulated on social media, with Saudi users launching hashtag #ArrestMolesterEngle demanding officials to intervene and arrest the pedophile sister.
Engle was described as devoid of any feelings for harassing her sister in this ugly way, in addition to filming the incident and publishing it without any fear or hesitation.
Promptly, Human Resources Services Division in Riyadh responded to the video, and tweeted: ‘Referring to what has been circulated on social media about the abuse of a child by her sister, we clarify that the case has been monitored and necessary measures are being taken in coordination with the relevant authorities.’
