Facebook ‘trolling’

The tragic event occurred on Monday, as internet trolling led to the suicide of a young lady. The victim has been identified as A Vinupriya, and a native of Elampillai in Salem district. She was a university graduate in chemistry and had already lined up a new job working within the government.

She was alerted to the images by friends. The images show the victim scantily dressed and half naked. Her father immediately lodged a complaint the Police Superintendent, Amit Kumar Singh who passed the case on to Magudanchavadi police.

Police response

A youth was called in for questioning straight away, but was released with no action taken after it was concluded that he was not involved. The police asked for a further 15 days in order to get assistance from cyber-crime experts who could obtain an IP address to help trace the perpetrator(s).

Despite this, on Monday Vinupriya discovered herself tagged in another image, and this time it included her father’s cell phone number. After this, she decided to take her own life, and was discovered by her uncle having hanged herself. She was rushed to the Government Mahan Kumaramangalam Medical College Hospital in Salem where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Charges against the police

The victim’s father has been outspoken against the police. He believes that if the man had been arrested rather than released this whole sorry chapter could have been avoided. He stated, “If they had taken action against the miscreants, they may not have uploaded the second picture and she may still be alive.”

He has said that until there is an arrest he will not permit a post-mortem to be carried out on his daughter’s body.

He has also alleged that the police demanded a new cell phone as a bribe to initiate an enquiry.

Police have confirmed the presence of a suicide note at the scene, stating, “a suicide note was found in her room, in which she stated she could not deal with the predicament, more so after her parents suspected she had something to do with the photos uploaded on Facebook.”
