The young man was arrested under POCSO charges. The incident indicated that social media’s influence on youth’s lives arose. The incident sheds light on the darker side of social media connections.

Key Points:

  • A 16-year-old girl took her life in Badiyatukka, allegedly due to continuous harassment from her boyfriend, Anwar.

  • The incident sheds light on the darker side of social media relationships.

The young girl, a 10th-grade student, succumbed to the effects of consuming rat poison while under treatment in a private hospital in Bengaluru.

Earlier, authorities apprehended Anwar, a 24-year-old native of Mogral Kottakunn, under POCSO sections after he was on the run and caught in Bengaluru.

The disturbing saga began when the girl’s family discovered her relationship with Anwar, leading her to back out.

When the terrified girl got home, she ate poison because she was so terrified of the threats. She unfortunately died in a private hospital in Bengaluru despite efforts to save her. The darker side of social media interactions, particularly when faced with resistance and abuse, was brought to light by Anwar’s arrest and the subsequent police inquiry.
