An Indian teenager was shot dead by a relative as they posed with a homemade gun to record a clip for the TikTok video sharing app, police said on Thursday.
The 17-year-old man and four of his family members — including an 11-year-old cousin — were in a hotel room in western Maharashtra state when one of them accidentally pulled the trigger, police said.
