Mohit Mor, a social media celebrity, was shot dead by three gunmen near Delhi. 24-year-old Mor, a fitness enthusiast, had half a million followers on the popular video-sharing app TikTok. He would often upload fitness videos on his TikTok and Instagram profiles.

Mor was at a photocopy shop near a gym in Najafgarh on Tuesday waiting for a friend when he was killed. He was sitting on a sofa at the shop, when three unidentified men on a bike, entered the shop and pumped five bullets into him. Senior police officials, however, told the media that 13 bullets were fired at him.

The killers were caught on CCTV camera, leaving the scene of the crime. Two of the gunmen's faces were hidden by helmets, while one of them could clearly be seen

Police are investigating the reason behind the murder. Gang violence could be a cause, say some sources. "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", said a police officer to the media. "Prima facie, it appears a case of personal enmity and a money dispute," the officer added.

Police have registered a case under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and a probe has been initiated.
