India loves TikTok that is without a doubt. Unfortunately for many Indians people outside of India watch TikTok videos to laugh at people rather than laugh with people. The short video clip platform has been involved in various controversial issues including being banned during the Indian elections. Well, tiktok is now making the headlines again for the wrong reasons.
A 19-year-old boy from Yadgir (Karnataka) was reportedly tied up and beaten up by his girlfriend’s family members for making TikTok videos with her.
A video clip which has been recorded by eye-witnesses shows the boy tied to a tree and being thrashed by a local mob. Also, the girl can be seen hitting him with her sandals while the boy’s mother tries to stop the mob.
The boy has been identified as Bugappa who is a resident of Haligera village of Yadgir district. The boy was then taken to the hospital. However, no police case has been registered so far in this case.
Bugappa has reportedly uploaded many videos with the girl on TikTok. The family of the girl saw one of those videos. Until then, they were unaware of her relationship with the boy.
After they saw the video, the girl’s family confronted Bugappa and assaulted him. The girl was also unaware of the fact that he had been recording TikTok videos.
