The Rasool Nagar police station arrested the two brothers during the investigation of the murder of 17-year-old Rizwan Aslam.
According to the police, Aslam and his cousins were all frequent users of TikTok. Additionally, they used to play the popular online game PUBG.
When the victim allegedly swore at both brothers while playing the game, things got out of hand. The brothers were also envious of Aslam’s quick ascension on TikTok, where he had accumulated more followers than the brothers.
After the argument over the game, the brothers hatched a plan to kill their cousin. They called him to a guest house and murdered him, the police have said.
