Paparazzo Viral Bhayani wrote on his Instagram page, “Sad news 16-year-old sweet tik-toker @siya_kakkar died by suicide. Before publishing this I spoke to her Talent management agency head Arjun Sarin who just spoke to her last night for song collaboration and he says she was in a good mood and perfectly alright. Even he has no clue what went wrong that she had to go this way. You go through her videos and you can she was so good in her content, it’s really sad that she chose this path. If you are feeling depressed please don’t do this.”
According to the police, information regarding the incident was received on Wednesday.
Her father found her hanging at around 9 p.m. on Wednesday. No suicide note has been recovered near the body, the police said.
“The body of the victim was handed over to her family for the last rites on Thursday, though the reason behind such an extreme step is yet to be unearthed,” a senior police officer said.
