19-Year-Old Man From Delhi Got Shot In The Face By His Friend For A TikTok Video

On April 20, a 19-year-old man from Delhi died after his friend allegedly shot him while making a video on TikTok, inside an SUV.

The Madras High Court has requested the central government to issue a ban on TikTok, the popular Chinese video-sharing platform that has taken India by storm. There are several reasons as to why banning the app. The High Court claims that it encourages pornography. Moreover, there are cases in which people, while shooting TikTok videos, have been badly hurt.

On the night of April 20, a 19-year-old man was shot by his friend in the face inside an SUV just to get a video on TikTok. The incident happened at Barakhamba Road. According to the police, at the time the event took place, three of the victim’s friends were there, and all of them have been arrested.
