Police on Tuesday evening detained six teenaged boys and three teenaged girls while they were creating Tiktok videos in various areas of Rajshahi city.
Rajshahi Metropolitan Police commissioner Md Abu Kalam Siddique disclosed their detention at a press conference on Wednesday.
Kalam claimed that the Tiktokers were making videos and getting obsessed with YouTube.
He alleged, ‘There are powerful groups of TikTokers who are luring the girls into the TikTok world, and trafficking them to other countries’.
Kalam said that they learned from the detainees that about 500 boys and girls were making TikTok videos in Rajshahi.
‘Most of girls are students of eighth to tenth grades. We are trying to make a list of them. Our message to them is ‘come back from making videos’. Otherwise, actions will be taken against them’, he added.
