How ‘Instagram followers’ killed two youth


On Wednesday night, two young people were fatally stabbed in the Outer Delhi neighbourhood, allegedly by a group of teens. Three young people, including a girl, were arrested by police after they reportedly committed the crime in order to gain Instagram followers and settle a score. According to the police, the girl and one of the deceased used to be jealous of one another’s social networking app followings.

Around midnight, a resident who had seen the youngsters bleeding on the road dialled 911.

Police said they are looking for others involved in the crime.

Devesh Kumar Mahla, DCP (Outer North), said, “The girl had called her friends around 11.30 pm who then invited the victims for a meeting. When the victims reached the spot, four of the accused attacked them with knives. The victims were rushed to a hospital where they died during treatment.”
