Police in Karachi have detained a guy for reportedly harassing Turkish vlogger Seda Nur, who is now in Pakistan to highlight Pakistan’s positive aspects in her videos.

The change happened in reaction to Nur’s video, which recently went popular on social media and described how she experienced harassment in Karachi’s Saddar neighbourhood.

Nur included clips from her vlog in which a man with a blue t-shirt could be seen following her on the sidewalk in a market in Saddar. The vlog was stopped at the beginning of another tape that Nur reportedly filmed afterwards to identify the “harasser.”

The YouTuber said that a man followed her around as she filmed a video for her channel and even “touched” her when he had the opportunity.

“So as you could see this weird man in blue who started following me and every time I was stopping, he was passing me and waiting on a spot for me to pass him again so he can follow me again,” Nur said.

She stopped and checked to make sure he was gone when she realised something was wrong.

The female vlogger said that someone “touched” her back while she was looking at her phone.

“I just turned around and I was ready to punch someone, but I saw a little boy. He was just around 12 years old so I thought he might have touched me by accident,” she said, adding that she didn’t react considering his age.

Nur claimed that when she made her way to her location, she noticed that “the youngster” and “the man in blue” were both standing to her left and behind her, respectively. But she yelled at them and pushed them away.

In response, the Karachi police detained the alleged harasser, Shoaib, who later expressed regret to the visitor.

In a video shared by the police, Shoaib claimed that he didn’t know “this lady would take me as a harasser.”

“I was just strolling around behind her but I didn’t have any ill intentions […]. I’m embarrassed that she felt bad so I apologise to her,” he said.
