A medico-legal case was registered against a 24-year-old woman, whose husband attempted suicide after she allegedly used fake Facebook accounts to put up messages, along with photographs of her husband with number of women.
Bangalore Mirror reported that the posts claimed Neelesh Singh, a native of Indore currently residing in Bengaluru, had relationships with the women which spoilt his reputation in front of his relatives and friends.
Namitha, Neelesh’s wife for three years, had been allegedly doing this for a year. This led to him to attempt suicide by consuming poison.
Namitha was called to the police station for interrogation after an FIR was filed. During counselling at Mahila Sahayavani, she reportedly confessed to have used Facebook to settle scores with her husband, said the BM report.
"We spoke at length with her about the complaint lodged with us by her husband. After initially denying any wrongdoing, she admitted to everything saying she did it to keep her husband in control," a police officer said.
With the investigation still in progress, the police is putting together documentary evidence from Facebook.
BM quoted Neelesh saying, "One morning, my phone started ringing and people on the other side abused me a lot. I then checked my Facebook after I received a number of notifications. It had my photos with six different girls, girls I had not seen in my life. Whoever put up these pictures, had also written that I had cheated these girls after misusing them."
After an initial investigation with a friend, Neelesh got some proof that his wife was involved in it.
However, on confrontation she denied and it escalated into a fight, reported BM.
"I was shocked but did some investigation with help from a friend only to find that it was my wife who had done it. When I confronted her with it, she denied it. We had an ugly showdown. After a few days when I opened my Facebook account, the entire drama of the fight my wife and I had was up there. I realised that since everything that happened between her and me found its way onto Facebook, it had to be my wife who was putting it up there," Neelesh wrote in his complaint.
"Every day, she would attach my photo with one girl or the other and upload it. Her actions were ruining my life in the eyes of friends, and this went on for months. I requested her to stop, but she did not. She would upload every single fight that happened between us and wrote very bad things about me. Finally, when I could not take it any longer, I consumed poison in order to end my life," he added.
