India has witnessed growing Hindu-Muslim tensions in recent years over what Hindu hardliners term "love jihad" - where they accuse Muslim men of participating in a "conspiracy to turn Hindu women from their religion by seducing them". She committed suicide on January 6. According to the complaint, the caller, who later identified himself as Santosh, a Bajrang Dal activist from Mangalore, also asked Dhanyashree why she was wearing a head scarf in some of her photographs posted on social media. The harassment had caused humiliation to her family members, she said.

The SP said that the police will arrest all those who harassed the victim orally or through social media. "We are taking this case seriously because it wasn t her fault", said the police official.

According to Annamalai, "There was a photo in which the girl is with a boy from another community and a lot of people have circulated this photo creating aspersions on the girl so we are also trying to find whoever has sent the photo to this girl by making any comment which would have hurt her to take this extreme step".

Local police officers have called it "moral goondagiri".
