Kochi: Unable to bear further humiliation, a 27-year-old married woman against whom obscene messages had been posted on Facebook ended her life by hanging at nearby Cheranallore, police said.
The incident occurred last night in the town, they said.
The woman had earlier approached the police complaining against the accused, who had posted the messages defaming her on the Facebook and sending such messages on her mobile.
Family sources alleged that though she approached police, no complaint was filed. The woman then approached the Kerala High Court, which directed the police in that town to conduct a probe and file a report.
Police, however, said the 30-year-old accused was a relative of the woman and he had been warned to desist from defaming her.
