Salem: Vinupriya, a 21 year old girl in Tamil Nadu committed suicide by hanging herself in the room after she spotted some semi-nude pictures of herself on her Facebook page. Last week, she was shocked to find her picture on Facebook. She immediately informed her parents who lodged a complaint with the cyber crime police on June 23. The police told Vinupriya’s father that they were closing in on the culprit and that he would be nabbed within 15 days.
Her father, Annadurai, a powerloom owner, refused to receive her body after post-mortem unless the culprit who posted the Facebook picture is nabbed.
“I will not receive the body of my daughter unless the culprit who was responsible for my daughter’s death is arrested,” he said. Curiously, the Facebook page showing her semi-nude picture disappeared just hours after she committed suicide. The grieving father said that his daughter had completed B.Sc last year and was not employed.
Annadurai said “Vinupriya was very disturbed by her picture. And when we went out on Monday morning, she hanged herself. They got the cellphone from me and did not take proper action. And my daughter is now no more.”
