RIP Aaruni Kurup: Netizens mourn TikTok star's demise


Aaruni Kurup was just nine-year-old but she had almost 14,000 followers on TikTok. Since two days, social media seems to be in despair as the little TikTok star succumbed to a terrible disease.

Aaruni Kurup passed away on Thursday and netizens have been talking nothing but about her. Reportedly, Aaruni died after suffering from an unidentified brain disease.

The toddler was hospitalised after she complained of severe headache. Later, she was shifted to the SIT Hospital in Trivandrum and even then medical experts failed to save the life of Aaruni.

It is said that medical experts are still unclear about the disease and her throat swab has been sent to Alappuzha virology institute.

Netizens have been sending condolences to her mother and family members. It was just last year that Aaruni's father had died in an accident in Saudi Arabia. The family was recovering from the tragic accident when Aaruni too was hospitalised.

The fourth standard student's TikTok bio now reads, "Thank you so much for your love and support....taking a long break."
