A 21-year-old Tik-Tok star Shiwani was found murdered in a bed at her salon in TDI Kundli in Sonepat district on Sunday and the accused was arrested on Monday. She was allegedly murdered by her close friend named Arif after she stopped speaking to him.
While talking to The Pioneer over the phone, Inspector Ravi Kumar, SHO Kundli, said that police were informed about the incident at around 11 am on Sunday and accused Arif was arrested on Monday. "Accused is being interrogated", he added.
Police sources said that Shiwani’s father, Vinod, in his complaint to the Kundli police, stated that she was having friendship with a man named Arif, since the past four to five years. Shiwani had stopped talking to him 15 days ago. Arif was harassing her and that’s why she had stopped talking to him. He also alleged that Arif murdered his daughter due to “a one-sided affair". Vinod stated that his daughter Shiwani, used to run a salon in a flat in TDI Kundli.
SHO Kundli said after the incident, a case was registered against Arif for murder. “Prima facie it seemed that the accused had murdered the woman by strangulating her,” he said. It seemed that the accused was possessive about her and killed her in an attempt to take revenge after she stopped talking to him, the SHO added.
The deceased apparently had a large number of followers on Tik-Tok and she used to live with her family in a rented accommodation at Kundli of Sonepat district
