A video has been viewed thousands of times in multiple social media posts in October 2021 alongside a claim that a Pakistani investigative journalist was arrested in connection with a harassment case that caused widespread outrage. The video has been shared in a misleading context: it has previously circulated in reports about the journalist being arrested over an unrelated incident in 2016. There have been no official reports that the journalist was arrested in October 2021 over the harassment case.
