Indian police launched an investigation last week after Siya Kakkar, a very popular Indian teenager on the TikTok social network, was found hanged at her home in New Delhi last Thursday, as reported by many media including CNN.
"Siya died by suicide in her New Delhi residence around 9 p.m. on June 25. She lived with her family. Her family is in shock and has asked for (respect for) her privacy. No suicide note was found, "said Delhi police, quoted by India Today. His cellphone was seized in order to trace his last telephone contacts, according to the same source.
"She looked normal"
Siya Kakkar, 16, was followed by almost two million fans on TikTok, a social network where she shared videos of choreography or lip sync (lip sync on sound extract). She had been there again on Wednesday, the day before her death.
Her death was reported on Instagram by her manager Arjun Sarin, who praised her as "the best artist". Questioned by India Today Thursday, he explained that he had seen no warning signs: "It must be due to something personal ... In terms of work, she was doing well. I spoke with her last night (Wednesday) for a new project and she looked normal. "
Siya Kakkar, confined to her home due to the coronavirus pandemic, appeared depressed for four days, police said.
