The police suspect more minors have been their victims.
The Maharashtra Police arrested one Tik Tok star Sameer Khan (19) and his accomplice Mohammed Sadiq Siddiqui (25), for abducting a minor, torturing and raping her.
Khan shared a portion of the torture video on Instagram, which brought the problem to light.
Before Tik Tok was banned in June last year, Khan used to shoot videos for the Chinese video-sharing app and had become a star.
Minor girls used to approach him for shooting their videos.
The victim approached him for a video shoot. He befriended her and shot some intimate videos. He forced her into submission by threatening to release those videos online.
The police suspect Khan and Siddiqui tortured and raped some more minor victims.
Out of fear and shame, victims have not come forward to lodge complaints.
The victim's family has even complained to Khan’s family, as they believe Sameer Khan’s family was aware of his misdeeds and crimes.
