Panipat, June 29

The Kundli police on Monday arrested a man for allegedly killing a 21-year-old TikTok star, who was found murdered in a bed at her salon in TDI, Kundli, in Sonepat district on Sunday. The accused was a close friend of the deceased.

The woman, Shiwani, was allegedly murdered by a close friend after she stopped speaking to him.

Shiwani’s father, Vinod, in his complaint to the Kundli police, said she was friends with a man, Arif, since the past four to five years. Shiwani had stopped talking to him 15 days ago.

“She told us that Arif was harassing her and that’s why she had stopped talking to him,” he said. He alleged that Arif murdered his daughter due to “one-sided affair.”

Inspector Ravi Kumar, SHO, Kundli, said a case was registered against Arif for murdering her and he was arrested on Monday evening.

It was revealed during a preliminary investigation that Arif was possessive about her and he went to talk her at her salon on Friday, but she refused to talk to him. Then he strangulated her and managed to flee from the spot, he added.

The body of the deceased was handed over to her family after a postmortem examination on Monday, he said. The accused will be produced in the court on Tuesday, he said.
