We all know what TikTok is, right? It’s the social media platform that’s most “in” right now and has videos like Vine used to have. Most of them are lip syncs but you’ve got other stuff as well. Ever since its release, it has gained massive popularity amongst the masses, especially the youth. You can tell that by the fact that as of 2018, this app had over 500 million users worldwide.
Two days ago, a TikTok celebrity was shot multiple times causing him to lose his life
Mohit Mor was a gym trainer and fitness enthusiast from Bahadurgarh, Haryana. He was 27 years old and had over half a million followers on TikTok.
This tragic event has made people question as to why would someone murder a TikTok celebrity
According to reports, he was shot yesterday in Najafgarh at a local shop. On Tuesday, he was at a local photocopy shop in Najafgarh (a place near Delhi) and, around 5 PM, armed men came in and shot him multiple times. Police reports say that he was shot 13 times and he was declared dead when he was taken to the hospital.
Police are looking into the matter and their focus is on the comments on his videos and his call records.
All three assailants were caught on CCTV camera and police have started looking for all of them. One of them’s face was visible in the footage as well whereas the other two had worn helmets.
Fans are sharing his Tiktok videos as a tribute to the influencer
It is so tragic to see someone who was loved by so many, die in such a manner. Mohit had also just started college in April of this year. He was a student of Motilal Nehru College in Dehli. I can’t imagine what his parents must be going through. Incidents like these are always hard for family and friends to cope with. May his soul rest in peace.
