Bangalore: A case of abetment to suicide has been booked against a 22-year-old youth, whose girlfriend who was studying in IIM-B, reportedly committed suicide after reading his notification on a social networking site that she was dumped.

"We have booked a case of abetment to suicide against Abhishek, who is allegedly linked to Malini (the victim)," ACP (law and order) Suneel Kumar said here today.

Malini Murmu, a first year MBA student from Jharkhand, hanged herself in her hostel room on September 20 after reportedly reading her boyfriend Abhishek's announcement on Facebook about their break-up.

Kumar said police are trying to track down Abhishek, who had posted the message on Facebook.

Police had found a note on Malini's Facebook message board saying, "He ditched me", which they suggested meant she was upset over the break-up.

Abhishek was in Bangalore recently and had a quarrel with Malini after which he posted a change in his relationship status on Facebook, saying, "Dumped my new ex-girlfriend," which possibly led to the suicide, police said.

Having worked at Infosys after completing her B Tech, Malini joined IIM-B last June.
