A youth was allegedly shot dead by his friend when they posed with a pistol to film a video on Tik Tok, a poular mobile app, the police said on Sunday.
The incident occurred on Saturday night when the deceased, Salman, went for a drive to India Gate in a Hyundai Creta car along with his friends Sohail and Amir.
When they reached the Ranjit Singh flyover near Barakhamba Road on their way back, Sohail, seated next to Salman who was driving the car, pulled out a country made pistol.
“Sohail amied the pistol at Salman for making a Tik Tok video, but the pistol went off shooting Salman on his left cheek,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Madhur Verma said.
“Amir and Sohail panicked after the incident and drove the car to a relative’s place in Daryaganj, where Sohail changed his blood stained clothes. With the help of the relative, they took Salman to the nearby LNJP Hospital, where he was declared brought dead,” the DCP said.
After the hospital management informed the local police, Sohail, Amir and the relative were arrested. While Salman was arrested for firing the bullet, Amir and the relative were held for disposing of the weapon and the blood stained clothes.
The police are investigating whether the bullet went off accidentally or it was fired with an intent to kill.
2 Vikas Dubey aides shot dead in separate encounters in Uttar Pradesh
Two accomplices of gangster Vikas Dubey were shot dead by the state police in two separate encounters on Thursday morning.
Prabhat Mishra alias Kartikeya had been arrested in Faridabad on Wednesday by a team of the Special Task Force (STF) and was being brought to Kanpur on transit remand.
“Our vehicle was in the Panki area in Kanpur when it developed a snag. As the vehicle was being repaired, Prabhat Mishra tried to snatch the pistol of an inspector and opened fire at the STF team. He was shot dead in retaliatory firing,” said an STF official.
Another Vikas Dubey accomplice, Ranvir alias Bauan Shukla, was shot dead by the STF in Etawah while he was allegedly trying to flee in a car.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Etawah Akash Tomar said that they had received a tip-off that a Swift Desire with a Delhi registration number was moving in a suspicious manner.
“When we tried to intercept the car in the Civil Lines area, the miscreants opened fire at the police. Bauan Shukla was killed in retaliatory firing. Three other miscreants who were following in a Scorpio managed to flee. We have cordoned off the area and a search is on for them,” he said.
The SSP said that a pistol, a double barrel gun and some ammunition has been seized from the miscreant.
Bauan Shukla carried a reward of Rs 50,000 on his head and was involved in firing on policemen on July 3 that left eight police personnel dead in Bikru village.
Earlier on Wednesday, Dubey’s trusted lieutenant, Amar Dubey, who was also his nephew, was killed in an encounter in Maudaha in Hamirpur district.

Officials, staff booked in Uttar Pradesh PCS officer’s suicide case
A day after PCS officer Manimanjari Rai, 30, was found hanging in her house in Ballia, the Maniyar Nagar Panchayat (MNP) Chairman Bhim Gupta, tax clerk Vinod Singh, computer operator Akhilesh, executive officer Sikandarpur Sanjay Rao, a driver and some unidentified persons have been booked in a case of abetment of suicide at the Kotwali police station.
Manimanjari Rai was found hanging at her residence on Tuesday and her family suspected foul play.
Kotwali Inspector Vipin Singh said Vijayanand Rai, brother of the deceased officer, had filed a complaint after which FIR was lodged under Section 306 of IPC.
In his complaint, Rai alleged that MNP chairman Bhim Gupta, some contractors and office employees were pressuring Manimanjari Rai to adopt unfair means in allotting contracts of development works and payments.
“As my sister opposed them, these people were unhappy with her. Feeling the pressure, Manimanjari met the District Magistrate and requested him to attach her with the district headquarters. However, when she resumed the charge after three months, she came to know that many payments had been made by forging her signature,” alleged Rai.
“Tenders had to be floated for development work of Rs two crores, but the MNP board did not pass a proposal in this regard and the tender process could not be initiated. However, the chairman prepared proposals for 35 works and started pressuring her to issue orders for their execution without following tender process. Of these, 18 were given to one contractor,” he stated.
When she complained to the District Magistrate Hari Pratap Shahi in this regard, Executive Officer Sikandarpur Sanjay Rao also started pressurising her in the favour of the chairman.
The officer’s brother further alleged that Manmanjri’s driver was also hand in glove with the chairman and his men. Many anonymous calls were made to Manmanjari to pressurise her.
“The chairman and his accomplices put intense pressure on her. She was subjected to excessive harassment that compelled her to commit suicide,” he alleged.
He has demanded action against those responsible for compelling her to end her life.
Manmanjari was posted as executive officer of the MNP in 2018. It was her first posting.
