His associate, Satyajeet, has shot two prank videos for Sumit. Satyajeet is also a prankster and he has a channel in the name of ‘DC Prank’.
While talking to mediapersons, Satyajeet said, “Such things, if they bear the stamp of the Censor Board are okay to be aired. So tomorrow, if we get the stamp of Censor Board, will this video be okay?”
Sumit’s video was uploaded by him on January 1 on YouTube. But on getting negative comments by the viewers of YouTube, he removed the purported video from his channel but by that time, the video had been downloaded by the other users and posted again on YouTube.
Sumit led police to his associate Satyajeet, who was apprehended from his house in Ashok Vihar Phase III, Gurgaon.
“During interrogation, Satyajeet disclosed that he is a friend of Sumit from college.” When Sumit started his channel on YouTube in the name of ‘Crazy Sumit’, he joined him and helped him in shooting videos and arranging the cast,” said the officer.
Satyajeet also started a prank channel on YouTube in the name of ‘DC Prank’ from September 2016.
He made three videos for himself. Sumit had shot the “kissing and running” video in three locations, one in Connaught Place and two other places in Gurgaon.
“It is to be verified whether the version of the two suspects is true. Statements of the girls will be taken to know this aspect and that will clarify if they were lured.
“Investigation will also be conducted from the event management company, YouTube and Google to assess their criminal liability. Notices will be sent to them,” said the officer.
