As well as arresting Anil, the police have also launched a huge operation to arrest the main accused Santhosh and three others. The suicide note said that some boys had barged inside Dhanya's home, harassed her and her mother since Dhanya was spotted speaking to a Muslim man. According to media reports, the girl was being hounded by BJP Yuva Morcha leader Anilraj after she shared a WhatsApp message saying "I love Muslims".

According to reports, the woman, who was an undergraduate commerce student, used to chat on Facebook with a Muslim man who attended the same college as her.

An Indian woman who tried to promote peace between Hindus and Muslims has committed suicide after being subjected to harassment and cyber-bullying.

In what can be said as another death due to social pressure, a 20-year-old girl ended her life by hanging herself as she was being harassed over her friendship with a man from a different community in Chikamagalururu, Karnataka.

The Mudigere police have arrested M.V. Anil, president of Mudigere town unit of BJP's Yuva Morcha on this issue, based on the suicide note.

Police said screenshots of this exchange were shared on social media.

The police which is carrying forward the investigation in the case has so far not disclosed the contents of the suicide note.

"She has mentioned that there was a photo of her with a man from another religious community".

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".

The girl committed suicide over the harassment she faced from local political party members. "We are taking this case seriously because it wasn t her fault", said the police official.

The police later recovered the girl's phone and found out that her picture along with the Muslim man had been widely circulated on social media by Hindu fringe elements.
