A 27-year-old woman, hailing from Ernakulam, committed suicide over obscene Facebook messages on Sunday night.
Bijita (25), wife of Binukuttan from Ambalapuzha, is the deceased.
The housewife resides with her husband and her 2-year-old child and was found hanging in her bedroom flat after returning from a temple.
The accused Ratheesh, who is a relative of the woman, had posted obscene messages about her on FB and also sent lewd text messages to her.
Though the woman had filed a case of harassment with the police, no action was initiated. The woman had also approached the HC stating inaction from the part of the police.
The Cheranalloor police, however, said that a case was not registered due to lack of evidence and that the issue was settled after both parties were called for talks.
