Parbhani: A teenaged college girl committed suicide after her parents restricted her use of her mobile phone and social networking sites like Facebook, police said Thursday.
The incident occurred late Wednesday night after 17-year-old Aishwarya S Dahiwal had an argument with her parents over using Facebook on her computer.
According to investigating officer GH Lemgude of Nanalpeth police station in Parbhani, Aishwarya's parents had objected several times to her using social networking sites and chatting long over the mobile phone.
"Like all parents, their intentions were only to ensure that the girl did not go astray. They advised her to concentrate on her studies and stay away from long mobile chats and social networking sites," Lemgude said.
After the argument on Wednesday night, Aishwarya went to her room, penned a suicide note and hanged herself.
In the note, Aishwarya reportedly wrote that she had been constantly prevented from using Facebook by her parents. "Is Facebook so bad? I cannot stay in a home with such restrictions as I can't live without Facebook," her suicide note said.
Aishwarya's father Sunil Dahiwal, mother and two brothers are in a state of shock.
