Keri, Goa - August 10, 2011

21-year-old Arjun Narayan Mainkar hanged himself to death on August 5, 2011, after he was threatened by his girlfriend's family following the circulation of an MMS clip of the couple. The suicide note written in Marathi said that he had agreed to marry his girlfriend when she turned 18 but was continuously harassed by her relatives. He wrote that he was committing suicide to get rid of the pressure and requested the chief minister of Goa to investigate his case and punish the culprits. Before committing suicide, he sent messages to his classmates saying, "Come with your open eyes to see my closed eyes."

After his death, his girlfriend twice attempted suicide. The police are investigating the case and no arrest has been made in the MMS case. The case highlights the need for greater awareness and sensitivity towards mental health and the need for timely intervention and counseling to prevent such incidents from occurring.

The tragic incident highlights the need for greater accountability and responsibility among individuals and society towards the use and sharing of digital content.
