New Delhi: Four persons were shot by three persons of another group following a scuffle over a TikTok video in Rohini’s Som Vihar area.

The incident took place on Monday at 10.02 pm at Som Vihar area. The alleged persons fired eight rounds.

 

The victims were identified as Ravi Sharma (25), Rajender (46), both residents of Agar Nagar; Himanshu Pal (23), a resident of Brij Vihar; and Sanjeev Kumar (21), a resident of Sheesh Mahal Enclave, a senior police officer said.

“We received information on Monday at around 10.15 pm regarding the incident. The police rushed to the spot and shifted the injured to different hospitals,” deputy commissioner of police (Rohini) S.D. Mishra said.

During preliminary investigation, it was found that the two groups attended a wedding on November 29 where the accused told the victims not to shoot any TikTok video. This led to an argument between them, the DCP said.

 

The next day, the accused beat one of the victims over the quarrel. A few days later, the victims went to take revenge from the accused. They could not find any of the members of the group. However, they saw one of the men’s mother. They argued with her and abused her, a senior police officer said.

Later, the woman’s son threatened the victims and vowed to kill them, the officer added.

On Monday night, three bike-borne men went to the room where members of the other group were gambling. The accused barged into the room and opened fire on them before fleeing from the spot, the police said.

Eight rounds of bullet were fired, it said, adding that there were other people inside the room who escaped the attack.

 

A case was registered under Sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC and the Arms Act.

The police is trying to nab the absconding accused, DCP Mishra said.

The police said that the room, where the incident took place, was a gambling den.

On November 22, an FIR was registered for running a gambling racket and one Shivam was arrested.
