Girl kills herself after parents ban her from using facebook

A teenager who killed herself after her parents
banned her from Facebook left a note for a
devastated family saying she couldn't live
without the site.
Aiswarya Dahiwal, a second year college student
from Parbhani, in the Maharashtra state of
India, had asked her parents for permission to
log on to the site on Wednesday, but they said
no.The teenager then got into an argument with
the couple who told her that she should pay
more attention to school work, and spend less
time on Facebook.
The family also argued about Miss Dahiwal
making long mobile phone calls to her
friends.Her body was found on Thursday
morning, and police said that she had hanged
herself. A note found in Miss Dahiwal's bedroom
said that she had taken her own life because she
was not allowed to go on the social networking
site.According to her father Sunil, the family was
in 'deep shock' and that he 'never thought she
would ever take such a harsh step.'
A case of accidental death has been registered by
Indian officials and an investigation is
underway.
According to the Wall Street Journal, a recent
survey found that nearly 92 percent of India's
high school students prefer to use Facebook
rather than make calls to communicate.
