Update: A man identified as Suresh has been arrested by TN police in connection with the case
A 21-year-old girl from Salem committed suicide on Monday after her morphed nude pictures were uploaded on Facebook with her fatherâ€™s phone number last week.
She was a resident of Elampillai in Salem district and was a daughter of a weaver. She had completed her graduation in Chemistry. Last week, her friends informed her about the morphed nude pictures, according to The New Indian Express.
DC reports that her father alleges that he had bought the cops a new phone to get the case investigated quickly, but to no avail.
On June 23, her father had filed a police complaint at the District Superintendent of Police (SP) office and had asked to take strict action against the person who uploaded it. The complaint was later sent to Magundanchavadi Police. The police spoke to the girl and based on that, they questioned a person but did not find the accused.
The police assured the girlâ€™s family that they will find the accused with the help of the cyber crime cell within 15 days but on Sunday night, another nude picture of the girl was uploaded on Facebook with her fatherâ€™s mobile number. On Monday afternoon, the girl hanged herself to death when there was no one at home.
When her parent came back and found her hanging, they immediately took her to Salem Government Hospital and the doctors declared â€˜brought deadâ€™.
Her father told the media that she committed suicide because of the policeâ€™s negligence. If they would have taken action immediately, she would not have committed suicide, he said. The family said that they wonâ€™t be accepting the body until the accused is arrested.
