In an unfortunate incident, a 21-year-old woman committed suicide in Salem, Tamil Nadu, after allegedly facing continuous harassment on a social media website.

Vinupriya, a B.Sc student, reportedly began facing harassment on Facebook after she was tagged in a picture which was obscenely morphed.

Her father filed a complaint with the Magudanchavadi police station ten days ago regarding the violation.

The family claimed that the police did not take any steps despite several complaints, nor did they begin a procedure to block or remove the morphed photo.

Vinupriya hanged herself to death in her house when she was alone. Her body was sent to the Salem General Hospital for post mortem and results are awaited.

After the victim's family protested in front of the GH against the police, the cops kicked into action and filed a case to begin an investigation into the matter.
