Fitness enthusiast and gym trainer Mohit Mor was murdered in cold blood by three unidentified assailants. He was shot at point blank range.
In the wake of the ruthless gang war that took place in Dwarka Mor just three days ago, a gym trainer and social media celebrity was shot dead by three unidentified armed men.
27-year-old Mohit Mor, a social media celeb having over half a million TikTok followers and 3,000 Instagram followers, was in a photocopy shop on Tuesday, 21 May, at around 5:15 p.m. in Najafgarh, talking to a friend when three gunmen came bursting into the shop and opened fire.
“When Mohit Mor was busy talking with his friend inside the shop, three armed persons barged inside the shop and indiscriminately fired 13 bullets on him. Mohit Mor fell on a sofa kept inside the shop. He was rushed to near-by hospital where he was declared brought dead. Mohit Mor suffered seven bullets,” a senior police officer was quoted.
“All the three accused, one of them wearing a black helmet, had come on a scooty. They were seen in a CCTV footage running away from the busy narrow street after the crime,” he added.
“We are checking his Tik Tok and Instagram accounts comments and Call Details Record (CDR) to establish his enmity with anyone on social media that may help us to crack the case,” the senior police officer said.
While two of the gunmen were wearing helmets, one gunman’s face was not covered, and hence is clearly seen in the CCTV footage.
“We are trying to identify the accused. Prima facie, it appears a case of personal enmity and a money dispute,” the officer added.
While the motive of the murder is yet unknown, the case is being investigated. Gang rivalry has not been ruled out, however, Mor has no known history of gang activity.
“Mor did not have any criminal cases against him,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka) Anto Alphonse said. The case was registered under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and a manhunt has been launched.
