A Pakistan man was held for harassing a female Turkish vlogger in Karachi after she posted a social media video showing the incident, which went viral.
It is reported that police received a video clip via Whatsapp in which a man was seen harassing a woman who was making a vlog on Daudpota Road.
He said that the police searched the place and got confirmation from local shopkeepers about the incident.
“Acting on a tip-off, the police arrested the suspect and registered a case against him under Section 509 (uttering any word or making any gesture intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Pakistan Penal Code and would be presented before a magistrate concerned on Saturday,” local authorities said.
Local media reported that a female Turkish vlogger who is currently in Pakistan posts videos about the country. She recently posted a video explaining how she encountered an incident of harassment in Karachi’s Saddar area, which went viral.
In the video, Nur attached the bits from her vlog in which a man wearing a blue t-shirt was constantly seen walking behind her on the roadside in a market in Saddar. The vlog was cut where another clip started which Nur apparently recorded later to expose the “harasser”.
