Craze for TikTok resulted in the sudden demise of a Teenager. Pratik Wadekar (17) & his Relatives (Sunny Pawar [20], Nitin Wadekar [21]) posed with a country-made pistol while shooting a clip for the TikTok App. Pressing the trigger of the pistol accidentally led to a bullet injury and the 17-Year-Old died on spot.

Apparently, The Trio were in Shirdi for the last rites of a family member. They decided to shoot a video for the online platform but ended up paying a huge price.

Soon after Pratik collapsed, The Other Two ran out of the room. When the hotel staff who heard the gun shot tried to stop them, One of them threatened to open fire on them and fled from the scene.

Pratik was declared brought dead when he was taken to the hospital. A case was registered and two Youngsters were taken into custody. The fourth accused who is yet to be traced is a minor.
