Journalist Saima Kanwal was filming a segment for channel K-21 in Nazimabad in Karachi, Pakistan, when the incident occurred.
She had been rebuking the police guard for interfering with filming and was questioning him on camera when he turned around and slapped her.
The Frontier Constabulary guard then fired several shots in the air, according to local media reports.
A police spokesman said: ‘Gulbahar police have registered a case against the FC personnel over charges of conducting aerial firing and assaulting modesty of the female reporter of K-21 TV channel by slapping her.
‘Police have approached the FC authorities for seeking custody of the guard.’
