Noida: A TikTok celebrity and three others were arrested in Greater Noida on Wednesday for the robbery of mobile phones, police said.

Shahrukh Khan, 23, who has over 40,000 followers on video-sharing app TikTok, was held around 12.30 PM near Alpha 2 area while planning another robbery with his partners, police said. His partners were identified as Asif, Faizan and Mukesh, police said.

“Four looted mobile phones of various brands have been recovered from them besides Rs 3,520 in cash. A motorcycle used by them in the crime was also impounded,” SHO, Beta 2, Sujeet Upadhyay said.

Shahrukh had earlier worked as a chauffeur in Dubai and shot some of his TikTok videos there, Upadhyay told. “The four worked as a gang here. Two of them would come on a motorcycle and target victims, while the other two would reconnoiter the area and stay there after the loot to keep a tab on police,” he said.

Shahrukh, Faizan and Asif hail from adjoining Bulandshahr district, while Mukesh is from Bihar, police said.

An FIR has been registered against them at the Beta 2 police station under Indian Penal Code sections, Upadhyay said, adding that they were produced in a local court, which sent them to jail.

Recently in August, the Uttarakhand Police Department joined the popular Chinese short-form video platform as it looks to “connect” with the general public at a very “personal” level.

It followed Kerala Police which joined TikTok last month and have over 2.25 lakh followers.

“We believe being on TikTok gives us the opportunity to be easily approachable, while allowing us to connect with the general public at a very personal level,” Ashok Kumar, IPS, DG Law and Order, Uttarakhand police had said in a statement. He had added that Uttarakhand police would like to share awareness videos related to road safety, cyber security, woman safety and other social issues through the platform.

Through the account, Uttarakhand police creates and posts videos that raise awareness among the youth on various social issues as well as coordinate with creators who have become a sensation on TikTok to lend their messages an effective voice, a statement said.
