Kerala man, filmed and harassed on Valentine’s day, found hanging

Trivandrum, Feb 24: A young man from Kerala who was harassed by vigilantes on social media on Valentine's Day has been found hanging outside his home in Kerala's Palakkad district on Thursday, said NDTV.

A suicide note has been found in which he blames the vigilantes for his death.

The couple, in their twenties, were at a beach near Kollam on February 14 when the woman had to go to an isolated area to relieve herself and the gang tried to assault her.

The man was attacked too when he tried to rescue her. The accused recorded the couple where they reportedly asked the woman "obscene and humiliating questions" and posted it on the social media sites. The man was upset and stayed aloof for some days, according to the report.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had warned miscreants against such incidents and had told the police to take action against such people.
