Teen Commits Suicide After being Banned from Facebook

An Indian college student reportedly hanged herself Wednesday after her parents forbid her from using Facebook. The dead body of Aishwarya S. Dahiwal, 17, of Parbhani in West India, was found in her bedroom the next morning with a suicide note, India Real Time reported. “We still can’t believe it. We are in deep shock,” her father, Sunil Dahiwal, told the site. “We just wanted her to focus on her studies. We never thought she would ever take such a harsh step.”

The girl’s parents were concerned that her Facebook use and cellphone conversations were distracting her from her studies as a second-year college student, so they restricted her access to social networking after a heated argument, according to Officer G.H. Lemgude. “Is Facebook so bad?” her suicide note reportedly reads. “I cannot stay in a home with such restrictions as I can’t live without Facebook.”
