A prank goes awfully wrong in Bengaluru after seven YouTubers were arrested by the city police on Monday (November 11) for scaring people dressed up as a ghost in blood-stained white clothes and wig.
The incident took place at Sharifnagar near Yeshwanthpur, where the youth were ghost pranking commuters on the road and people sleeping at the pavements at night for their YouTube channel "Kooky Pedia". However, their stunt did not go as planned after an auto driver filed a complaint at Soladevanahalli police station.
