Siya Kakkar Dead - TikTok Star Dies by Suicide At 16

TikTok star Siya Kakkar has sadly passed away.

The Indian teenager – who is best known for her dance videos – died by suicide in New Delhi on Thursday (June 25). She was only 16-year-old.

Siya‘s death was confirmed by her manager Arjun Sarin, who said he had a conversation with her just hours before her death.

“I had a word with her last night for a new project and she sounded normal,” Arjun recalled via AceShowbiz.

“This must be due to something personal…work wise she was doing well.” Arjun said before sharing, “Me and my company Fame Experts manage lots of artists and Siya was a bright talent. I am heading to her home in Preet Vihar.”

Hours before she was found dead in her home in East Delhi, Siya posted a video of herself on top of a building in the city. While she was smiling in the video, she captioned the post, “There was no lack of desire, no want of people.”

According to sources close to Siya‘s family, she had been receiving “threats” on the Internet, but police were unable to confirm a motive during the current stage of the investigation.
