Berhampur: A man was killed while his brother-in-law (wife's brother) was critically injured after the motorcycle they were riding rammed into a truck while shooting a video on TikTok on their way back home from Taratarini Temple in Ganjam district on Thursday.
The deceased was identified as Sibashankar Sahu and his brother-in-law is Siba Patra, both of Haladiapadar village under Golanthara block of Ganjam district. They had gone to the shakti shrine today morning.
Videos found from their mobile phone suggested that they had been shooting TikTok videos on their way home. In some videos, they were seen grooving to the music while on the motorcycle, which was being driven by Sahu while Patra was shooting the act.
It is suspected that the duo got so lost in shooting TikTok videos that they did not notice a truck in front of them and rammed into it from the rear. Passersby came to their rescue and called an ambulance but Sahu breathed his last on the way to hospital.
