A planned road accident? A Freudian slip, if there ever was one.

Locals say Adil Rajput is alive
Famous TikToker Adil rajput’s wife uploaded a video Tuesday morning to announce that Adil had passed away in a car accident. The video was uploaded on Adil’s TikTok account and his wife was seen weeping while announcing the news.
“Adil is no longer with us”, she said. As per her, she was notified of his death by one of his friends,
Adil Rajput has over 2.6 million followers on his official Tiktok account. Of course, the supposed news of his demise left fans visibly shocked, with word spreading of it far and wide.
However, locals from Rahim Yar Khan, the city where Adil is based at, say that they went to his house to offer their condolences.
These locals later said that Adil is still alive and well. They alleged that the video shared by his wife was nothing more than a cheap stunt to gain more followers.
Now the locals, who are understandably enraged, have demanded that authorities should take legal action against the TikToker for fooling everyone and spreading this fake news.
Both Adil and his wife have not yet issued any clarification for their controversial move.
