    An Indian women committed suicide after her scantily clad photo was uploaded by some unidentified person on Facebook.

    NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — A 21 year old woman from Salem in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu committed suicide after an unknown person doctored her photo, showing her as scantily clad and posted it on Facebook.

    The woman could not bear the trauma and committed suicide by hanging herself.

    The deceased, A Vinupriya, was a native of Elampillai in Salem district and had completed graduation school.

    According to the Police Superintendent, "A suicide note was found in her room in which she stated that she could not deal with the predicament, more so after her parents suspected she had something to do with the photos uploaded on Facebook."

    In fact, Vinupriya's father lodged a complaint with police and urged them to take action against the culprits when her first doctored photo was uploaded by the miscreants. But the police response was slow and meanwhile the unidentified people uploaded another morphed semi-nude photo of Vinupriya. Unable to bear the mental torture and social stigma she committed suicide.
