A man was crushed to death by a train while filming a video for TikTok in Sheikhupura, the police said.

The victim, identified as Asif, was shooting the video on the tracks when he was hit by the train travelling from Lahore to Narowal.

Immediately after the incident, the Railway police reached the site and moved the body to a hospital. “We are looking for his details so that the body can be sent back home.”

According to the police, a number of incidents like this have been reported across the country in the past few months.

Earlier this week, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority blocked the video-sharing app in the country on the orders of the Peshawar High Court.

“In respectful compliance to the orders of the Peshawar High Court, PTA has issued directions to service providers to immediately block access to TikTok,” the authority said in a Twitter post.
