While attempting to record a TikTok video near a level crossing in Bengaluru on Friday, two individuals lost their lives, and another person sustained injuries after being struck by a train. The deceased, identified as Abzad (19) and Mohammed Matti (22), both residents of RK Hegde Nagar in Yelahanka, were involved in the tragic incident. Zalibulla (22), who suffered severe injuries, is currently undergoing treatment at a hospital.
The unfortunate incident occurred around 5:30 pm when the trio walked onto the railway track near RK Hegde Nagar, situated between Yelahanka and Channasandra. The Kolar-Chikkaballapur-Bengaluru train collided with them while they were in the midst of filming a TikTok video, according to sources from the Bengaluru police.
This tragic event follows a similar incident in June, where a 22-year-old singer lost his life while attempting a stunt for a TikTok video in Godekere village, Chikkanayakanahalli taluk, Tumakuru district, Karnataka.
