A first information report (FIR) was registered on Wednesday against a private security guard named Hamad Gul, accused of shooting dead vlogger Saad Ahmed near Serena Mobile Market in North Nazimabad, Karachi the previous day.

According to the FIR, a copy of which is available with Dawn.com, the vlogger was at the mobile market along with his friends and was shooting a video on the upcoming match between Pakistan and India.

The victim was moved to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital by his friends where he expired.
