Bangalore: Malini Murmu, 22, a first year MBA student from the prestigious Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Bangalore allegedly committed suicide after her boyfriend dumped her and made the announcement on Facebook.

Police sources say Malini left behind a suicide note saying she was killing herself since her boyfriend left her. Investigations revealed that on the day she killed herself, Malini and her boyfriend had an argument which led to the breakup. Later her boyfriend left a post on Facebook saying, "feeling super cool today. Dumped my new ex-girlfriend. Happy independence day."

Aditional Commissioner of Police (law and order) Suneel Kumar said, "She got rejected after some issues with her boyfriend. Preliminary investigations say that the girl was dumped by her boyfriend on Facebook. We are still investigating into the case."

Based on her father Biswas Murmu's complaint, the police on Tuesday booked a case of abetment to suicide under section 306 of the IPC against the boy. If proven guilty, he could be punished by upto seven years of imprisonment. He has since deleted his Facebook account.

A shocked IIM-B campus issued a statement after the unfortunate incident. "We have lost a bright young person in the prime of her life. On behalf of the entire IIM-B community, Professor Pankaj Chandra, Director has conveyed the deepest distress of every member of the community to Malini's Parents, family and friends."

This is also one of the disadvantage of Social network. It sucks human brain when people are keeping on being in social network for long time and wasting teir time.
