Kolkata: A 17-year-old Kolkata school girl has committed suicide after alleged harassment on Facebook. The victim, a class XI student and resident of Behala Parnasree in west Kolkata, hanged herself at her room on Tuesday and left a six-page suicide note blaming one of her Facebook friends for abetment.

The police have arrested the prime accused, Faisal Imam Khan, a 23-year old college student and two of his friends, Satish Shaw and Deepak Gupta.

The girl befriended Faisal on the social networking site a few months ago but later started avoiding him. The accused then created a fake profile of the victim on the site with her morphed photographs and phone number which said she was "seeking friends" and was "open to relationships".

The victim started receiving obscene phone calls and allegedly chose to end her life to escape the ignominy.
