In a shocking incident, four youth including one female who were making ‘TikTok’ videos were shot dead in Pakistan’s Karachi early Tuesday morning, media reports said.
Quoting a senior police official, Dawn reported that all four deceased were active on social media, particularly Tik Tok.
Two of those who died, as per Dawn, were identified as Muskan and Amir.
According to the report, Muskan had called Amir, and asked him to meet on Monday night. Amir arranged a car and took his friends, Rehan and Sajjad, to meet her.
“All four of them roamed the city and [Amir and Muskan] also made TikTok videos [during that time],” Dawn quoted the police official saying.
The report said the four were attacked near Anklesaria Hospital, Garden, at 4:48am by unknown assailants.
“The woman was killed inside the car while all three men were shot outside the car. They were taken to the hospital but succumbed to their wounds,” the official said.
Shaikh said Rehan and Sajjad had previously made a TikTok video in which they were seen doing aerial firing in the city’s Ittihad Town area. Police had taken notice of the video after it went viral on social media, registering an FIR against the two men.
