TIKTOK star and dancer Siya Kakkar’s haunting final moments show her dancing, singer and talking about love hours before she took her own life.
The 16-year-old social media star took her own life on Wednesday evening in her home in New Delhi, India.
In her last posts to TikTok, Siya shared videos that show her smiling and dancing to her 1.9million followers.
In one video uploaded the day she took her own life, she is singing while on a rooftop and performing a dance routine.
Later that evening police received a call about the incident from a family member.
Siya was then rushed to hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
No suicide note was discovered until Thursday evening.
An investigation is being conducted and an inquest is underway.
Over the weekend, her phone, laptop and other devices will be examined and family members interviewed once they were over the initial shock, said police.
The teenager had been receiving “threats” on the internet, but police said they were unable to confirm the motive at this stage of the investigation, the Mail reports.
The news of Kakkar's death was confirmed by her manager Arjun Sarin, who managed all her work and endorsements.
He said: "This must be due to something personal… work-wise she was doing well.
YOU'RE NOT ALONE
EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.
It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.
It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.
And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.
Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.
That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.
The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.
Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.

"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."
Friend and photographer Viral Bhayani said: "Sad news 16-year-old sweet tik-toker @siya_kakkar died by suicide.
"Before publishing this I spoke to her Talent management agency head Arjun Sarin who just spoke to her last night for a song collaboration and he says she was in a good mood and perfectly alright."
He added: "Even he has no clue what went wrong that she had to go this way.
"You go through her videos and you can see she was so good in her content, it's really sad that she chose this path.
"If you are feeling depressed please do not do this."
The TikTok star was active on all the online platforms such as TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube.
