Dilip Rajaoria, Malhargarh police station in-charge said, “We found this video on social media but were unable to ascertain the exact location where it was shot. A colleague of mine told me that the railing shown in the video was of our police station area. We also found that the name Rahul written on the hand of the person brandishing the pistol. Hours later we nabbed them.”

He further said that along with the pistol, police also recovered three live cartridges from the accused. the motorcycle used in the video has also been confiscated by the police.

In October, two people, including a minor were arrested by Wadala Government Railway Police in Mumbai for performing stunts on a local train, in a bid to make TikTok videos.
