Pakistani judge boogying with 'dancing girl' quits

Resigns after video of event was posted on YouTube

Officials say a Pakistani judge has resigned after a video was posted on YouTube of him boogying with a so-called "dancing girl" at a party celebrating his brother's engagement.

Men in Pakistan often invite dancing girls — many of whom are prostitutes — to perform at such all-male events before weddings, akin to US bachelor parties.

Videos of these parties are often posted on the Internet, but it's rare for a public official to be caught in such a scandal.

Judge Mohammed Masood Bilal said Thursday the video was recorded during his brother's engagement party but declined to provide further details.

A court official, Mohammed Maqsood, says Bilal was working as a judge in the central city of Khanewal before he resigned Wednesday.

The video was posted July 20.
