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.
Pakistan continues unprovoked LoC ceasefire violation in Rajouri
Pakistan resorted to unprovoked firing and shelling on Indian positions on Monday on the Line of Control in J&K’s Rajouri district.
“At about 3.50 p.m. today, Pakistan initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and shelling with mortars along the LoC in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district.
“The Indian Army is retaliating befittingly,” said Colonel Devender Anand, defence ministry spokesman.
Since the beginning of this year, Pakistan has been violating with impunity the bilateral ceasefire agreement signed by the two countries in 1999.
24 civilians have been killed and over 100 injured in over 3,186 ceasefire violations by Pakistan on the LoC since January 2020.
Cross border shelling has brought insurmountable suffering in the lives of thousands of people living in villages close to the LoC whose lives, cattle and agricultural fields stand at great peril when shells start raining from across the LoC.

1984 riots: Delhi HC asks Police to continue security for witness
The Delhi High Court has directed the police to continue providing security to one of the witnesses in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case involving former Congress leader Jagdish Tytler.
A single judge bench of the high court presided by Justice Yogesh Khanna also issued notice to the Delhi Police and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and fixed the matter for further hearing on November 24.
During the course of the hearing, the Delhi government counsel opposed the plea stating that there is no further need for providing round the clock security.
However, noting the threat perception, the court asked the police to continue to provide round the clock protection to the witness.
The plea filed by the witness through Advocate Maninder Singh sought the court’s direction for providing security to him and his family members in view of the threat to his life and property and to that of his family members if he does not withdraw as a witness in the case.
