Tamil Nadu police arrested a man on Wednesday for allegedly posting morphed nude pictures of a 21-year-old girl from Salem on Facebook.

She committed suicide on Monday after her friends informed her that the morphed pictures had appeared on Facebook along with her father’s phone number last week, according to The New Indian Express. The chemistry graduate was a resident of Elampillai in Salem district.

The Deccan Chronicle reports that her father alleges that he had bought the cops a new phone to get the case investigated quickly, but to no avail.

On 23 June, her father had filed a police complaint at the District Superintendent of Police (SP) office and had asked to take strict action against the person who uploaded it. The complaint was later sent to Magundanchavadi Police. The police spoke to the girl and based on that, they questioned a person but did not find the accused.

The police have promised to suspend the Sub Inspector who was handling the case after over 150 people protested in front of the Salem government hospital on Tuesday.

The police assured the girl’s family that they will find the accused with the help of the cyber crime cell within 15 days but on Sunday night, another nude picture of the girl was uploaded on Facebook with her father’s mobile number. On Monday afternoon, the girl hanged herself to death when there was no one at home.

When her parents came back and found her hanging, they immediately took her to Salem Government Hospital where the doctors declared her ‘brought dead’.

Her father told the media that she committed suicide because of the police’s negligence. If they would have taken action immediately, she would not have committed suicide, he said. The family said that they won’t be accepting the body until the accused is arrested.
