A Villager named Pappu Paswan narrated the story of the girl and told the police.
According to sources, a 40-year-old woman and her 22-year-old daughter allegedly committed suicide in India. The suicide happened right after an obscene video of the daughter went viral on social media in India and Pakistan.
Stating that the incident took place in Nagrasen village, Gonda police of India’s Uttar Pradesh (UP) said:
The mother and daughter were upset ever since the video of the young girl and her lover went viral.
How did the video become viral?
A Villager named Pappu Paswan narrated the story of the girl and told the police:
The 22-year-old woman married in December. However, Satyam, a former partner of hers from a caste deemed superior, used to harass the woman even after marriage. On the night of the 22nd of March, Satyam revealed an obscene video of him and the woman to her husband and posted it on social media.
Sharing details of the video incident, Gonda cop Shailesh Pandey stated:
The accused (Satyam) was blackmailing the woman by saying he would tell the husband about their relationship. He also misbehaved with her and made an obscene video. After that, he started blackmailing her with the video, asking her to live with him. When the woman refused, he sent the video clip to her husband.
As soon as the video was posted on the internet, it went viral in India. The clip started doing rounds on the internet across the border in Pakistan too.
The villager continued to state:
This affected the woman’s relationship with her husband, and the woman and her mother were devastated. They did not come out of their house all of Tuesday. And on Wednesday, we found them hanging.
What did the Police do?
According to reports, Satyam has now been arrested and booked for abetment of suicide under the Scheduled Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. This act prohibits discrimination and prevents atrocities and hate crimes against scheduled castes and tribes.
