Four Pakistani TikTokers, including famous social media stars Muskan Sheikh and Amir Khan were shot dead in the Karachi Park neighborhood, police officials said.
According to police, the four were on their way by car when unidentified people opened fire on them, killing Muskan Sheikh on the spot while three others, Syed Rehan Shah, Amir Khan and Saddam Hussein, died of their later wounds.
Police believe that the attackers followed the car and attacked them near the Ankalsaria Hospital with a 9mm pistol. The tragic incident occurred at around 4:50 a.m., police said, adding that the killers first shot and killed Muskan in a car and then chased and shot the three.
Police said Muskan died on the spot while the rest died from their wounds at a hospital in Karachi.
The Sarfaraz Nawaz District Municipal SSP told media that it appeared to be a case of personal hostility as they were chased and killed by gunmen, but nothing can be conclusively said until the investigation is over.
The officer said police were analyzing footage from a nearby CCTV camera, and claimed to have found about nine empty bullets from a 9mm pistol from the crime scene and sent them to the forensics division for ballistic cross-matching.
A police source said that all those who died were Tikokers. They had left hours after Muskan and Amir Khan recorded and uploaded a TikTok video at Saddam Hussain’s house.
Police have also obtained another video showing Muskan and Amir who were shot before the attack but has not yet been uploaded on the social media platform.
Muskan is a divorced mother from a small child and lives in the Landhi neighborhood, Saddam is from Gulshan-e-Ghazi, while Amir is a resident of Nayabad, and Rehan is from Rashidabad.
The police said that Muskan and Amir were good friends while they were also friends with Rehan and Saddam. The police added that Amir was also attacked five months ago by Rehman alias Shahji, a friend of Muskan.
The gruesome CCTV footage from the crime scene circulating on social media shows the injured victims cowering in pain, desperate for help, while the on-site police display their traditional indifference and recklessness for emergency situations and continue to speak to each of them at the crime scene waiting for an ambulance, instead of taking them to the hospital with their cell phones.
