Four TikTokers, including one female, were shot dead near Anklesaria Hospital in Karachi's Garden area early on Tuesday morning, reported Dawn citing Karachi officials.

City Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Sarfaraz Nawaz Shaikh said all four deceased were active on social media, particularly Tik Tok. He said two of the deceased – Muskan and Amir – were friends.

According to the official, Muskan called Amir, and asked him to meet on Monday night. Amir arranged a car and took his friends, Rehan and Sajjad, to meet her.

"All four of them roamed the city and also made TikTok videos" the police officer said.

The official said the attack took place at 4:48am by unknown assailants.

"The woman was killed inside the car while all three men were shot outside the car. They were taken to the hospital but succumbed to their wounds," the official said.

The police found empty shells from 9mm pistols were found near the car. The family of the deceased arrived at the police station and a first information report (FIR) would be registered, he added. 

Previously, Shaikh said Rehan and Sajjad had made a TikTok video in which they were seen doing aerial firing in the city's Ittihad Town area. Police had taken notice of the video after it went viral on social media and registered an FIR against the two men.

The police suspect that the murders are “the outcome of some personal issues". However, the exact motive and identity of the killers are being investigated, he added.

There were no witnesses to the incident, said the SSP.
