In a shocking incident, a social media video making app TikTok celebrity was shot dead by three unidentified gunmen on Tuesday in Najafgarh, near Delhi. Mohit Mor, a 27-year-old gym trainer, who had over 5.17 lakh followers on TikTok, was a fitness enthusiast.
The incident took place when Mohit had gone to meet his friend at a photostat shop near his residence around 5:15 p.m.
"When Mohit Mor was busy talking with his friend inside the shop, three armed persons barged inside the shop and indiscriminately fired 13 bullets on him. Mohit Mor fell on a sofa kept inside the shop. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead. Mohit Mor suffered 7 bullets," said a senior police officer.
"All the three accused, one of them wearing a black helmet, had come on a Scooty. They were seen in a CCTV footage running away from the busy narrow street after the crime," he added.
Mor used to frequently upload fitness videos on his TikTok and Instagram profiles. He hailed from Haryana’s Bahadurgarh, but often stayed at his home in Najafgarh, the police said.
"We are trying to identify the accused. Prima facie, it appears a case of personal enmity and a money dispute," the officer added.
"We are checking his Tik Tok and Instagram accounts comments and Call Details Record (CDR) to establish his enmity with anyone on social media that may help us to crack the case," a police official said, adding investigation is underway.
