Bangalore: A 14-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide in Bangalore after her boyfriend dumped her on social networking site Facebook, said reports on Friday.

According to reports, the Class IX student said in her suicide note that her 20-year-old boyfriend Manoj, whom she met on Facebook two months back, dumped her and hence she was taking her life.

"The boy contacted her on Facebook, asked for her mobile number. They started talking. Later, when her father discovered this, he warned her to stay away from him," a relative of the victim was quoted as saying by CNN-IBN.

The girl continued her relationship with Manoj via Facebook chat from cyber cafes. 

However, after a month of dating, the youth reportedly said he was doing it for fun.

The police have arrested the B.Com student for rape and abetting suicide.
