'Cheated' man kills Facebook lover
New Delhi, April 20, 2014
Facebook romance has resulted in the murder of an Indian woman by her angry 'virtual' lover, who committed suicide later, a report said.
A 22-year-old man from Uttar Pradesh state's Muzaffarnagar shot dead his virtual girlfriend in Jabalpur, who he met on Facebook after finding out she was actually a married middle-aged woman, said the Times of India report. He attempted to commit suicide and later died in hospital.
Vineet Singh shot dead Jyoti Kori next to a picturesque setting of a waterfall on Friday after he found out that his virtual 21-year-old girlfriend was actually a 45-year-old mother of three from Jabalpur, the report said.
The situation came to light when a blood soaked Singh asked for help from people picnicking on the site.
SP Jabalpur Harinarayanachari Mishra said the two were in touch for little less than three years. Singh was jobless and Jyoti Kori regularly chatted with him on facebook. Jyoti's husband and all three children including her 21-year-old eldest daughter had no clue what their mother was upto.
It seemed like murder prompted by extreme hurt, frustration and anger, said Mishra.
According to sources, Singh kept repeating that he was cheated by a married woman when he was brought to hospital, the report said.
