A woman in Kochi took her own life after reports suggested that police officials failed to investigate a complaint that she had lodged.
The 25-year-old lady had lodged a case of Facebook abuse with the police after her neighbour posted some obscene posts about her on Facebook. According to the complaint, she said that her neighbour allegedly posted that she was having links with several men.
In spite of repeated attempts, the police failed to act on her complaint. The police on the other hand said that they had acted on her complaint and the 'comments on Facebook were soon removed.'
The woman was found hanging in her residence on Sunday night by her husband. The girl's family has alleged that the boy was harassing her through text messages as well.
