A shocking case was reported from Delhi where a 25-year-old man was allegedly robbed and murdered by a 20-year-old youth whom he met on a gay dating app. The deceased had been chatting on an app with the accuse from past few days, so, the accused asked him to meet him on a date.

The cops later arrested Kartik and recovered the victim's mobile stolen by them. The bike used in the crime was also seized. Kartik is involved in four cases of assault, attempted murder and other offences.
