Police have arrested a man from Mandi Bahauddin, Punjab, for uploading a video of female students on TikTok.
The TikToker had filmed some minor girls going to school in a rickshaw and uploaded it on the video streaming platform.
District Police Officer (DPO) Mandi Bahauddin, Anwar Saeed, took notice of the video and issued arrest orders for the culprit. On his directives, Civil Lines police arrested the TikToker and registered a case against him.
The TikTok craze has landed many individuals into trouble and has even led to several accidental deaths.
In a recent incident, a teenage TikToker accidentally shot himself while making a video in May. The 19-year-old Hamidullah from Swat was making a TikTok video when he unknowingly pulled the trigger of a loaded gun. The youngster died on the spot.
In several other incidents, people have been hit by trains, drowned in rivers, shot themselves, and have fallen from the roofs while shooting dangerous videos for the sake of a few likes on TikTok. Despite these incidents being reported repeatedly, the trend continues.
