An 18-year-old Indian girl studying in the Siliguri Government Polytechnic College committed suicide after falling prey to cyber bullying in the form of an MMS that featured the girl in a compromising situation with her boyfriend.
The young girl met her boyfriend, Anindya Garai, in her hostel mess and went ahead to bed him. Anindya recorded their sexual rendezvous and went ahead uploading it to various websites including YouTube.
Anindya Garai, the alleged perpetrator, blackmailed the girl and this led her to fall in the quagmire of depression. Also, after her MMS became public, the young girl was subjected to inhumane taunting by her college mates.
In September, she lodged a complaint with the police, but to no avail. Finally, unable to find any way out and to get rid of the humiliation, she committed suicide by strangulating herself from the ceiling fan of her hostel room on Thursday.
An FIR has been registered against Anindya Garai, who was absconding for the past two months.
