Footage shows four women being stripped and thrashed as punishment for allegedly stealing from a local shop in Pakistan – before being "paraded" naked through the streets.

The group were accused of shoplifting in Faisalabad, Punjab, and were said to have been accosted by locals.

In the video, the women enter the shop where a man is working and appear to take items off the shelves.

The shop employee leaves the premises and the women soon follow suit.

In a later clip, one of the women is crying as she crouches on the floor and the camera pans around to film what is happening outside.

Another woman is dragged in by three men by her ankles and wrists and then dumped on the floor near the first woman while looking visibly upset.

Meanwhile, a third woman is naked from the waist down while the fourth woman – who is also nude – is beaten with what appears to be a stick.

The women are shouting and crying during the brutal attack and attempt to shield themselves with their arms.

After one of the accused women attempts to cover up with a blue shawl, it is ripped away from her and she is left completely naked except for a bra and appears to be distressed.

People are jeering and beeping car horns while the woman tries to cover her chest with her arms.

One of the other half-nude women appears to find the blue shawl on the floor and she uses it to cover up her cowering friend.

The women were reportedly "paraded" up and down the street naked for an hour before the Punjab police were alerted and came to intervene.

Five people were arrested at the scene though it is not clear who was apprehended, and on what charges.
