A 22-year-old man from Hoskote near Bengaluru committed suicide on Thursday after posting a TikTok video, in which he requested viewers to take care of his mother upon his death.
As per the police, the man Kiran Yadav, who was reportedly an aspiring actor, shot the TikTok video and committed suicide in a rented room at Shrinivas Lodge, located right next to the police station. Yadav had been auditioning for Kannada reality shows since the last two years.
Yadav’s family informed the police that earlier this year, he had been approached by unidentified men who had told him that he had been selected for a reality show. Yadav had paid Rs one lakh to the middleman to secure a part in the show.
The middleman told Yadav in July that he was going to be a part of the show. However, around one week ago, Yadav had been informed by the middleman that he had not been selected for the show.
The police are investigating the case and are trying to identify the unidentified men and the middleman.
