A 16-year-old TikTok star and his two friends have been booked by JJ Marg police for allegedly sexually assaulting a minor girl, who is also popular. As per the HT report, "The three accused have booked under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012."
An officer from JJ Marg police station was quoted by the leading daily as saying, "He recorded several of her videos during their intimate moments, which she wasn't aware of. He threatened to leak the videos if she refused to continue the relationship."
