Mumbai: In a shocking incident, a 14-year-old girl committed suicide by jumping off her seventh-floor home last week in Mumbai over obscene messages on a fake Facebook account allegedly set up by a classmate.

The class 10 boy, who had been allegedly stalking the girl, has been arrested in the Maharashtra capital over the suicide of his classmate.

NDTV reported that when the girl’s parents complained to the police in this regard recently, the boy was warned and let off by the police after being questioned for a while.

The boy thereafter allegedly set up a Facebook account in the name of the girl and posted obscene messages in a bid to avenge the police complaint.

Shocked and embarrassed to see obscene messages in her name, the girl allegedly jumped off her apartment building in Mira Road on October 20.

The accused boy has been sent to a juvenile home.

A meeting between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and members of the European Parliament (EP) over the social network’s use of personal data will be webstreamed, the Parliament’s President said on Monday.

The meeting, scheduled to take place on Tuesday, would be streamed over the Internet after Zuckerberg agreed to it, EP President Antonio Tajani said on Twitter.

“I am glad to announce that he has accepted this new request. Great news for EU citizens… I thank him for the respect shown towards EP,” Tajani said.

The meeting would take place a month-and-a-half after Zuckerberg testified before the US Congress over an alleged massive personal data leak to UK-based firm Cambridge Analytica.

“We are convinced that the millions of Europeans affected by the Cambridge Analytica scandal deserve a full and thorough explanation from Facebook’s top manager, just as was the case for US citizens,” Tajani penned in a letter to Zuckerberg in April. (IANS)
