A 22-year-old man shot dead his Facebook girlfriend in Jabalpur, northern India, when he found out she was middle-aged and already married.
He then took his own life, Malaysian Nanban reported.
It was reported that Vineet Singh, from Muzaffanagar in Uttar Pradesh state, shot dead 45-year-old Jyoti when they met on Friday after being Facebook friends for three years.
The mother of three from Jabalpur allegedly used a picture of a young actress in her Facebook profile, leading Vineet to think she was a 21-year-old woman.
Police said it was a case of a jobless youth and a bored housewife making friends on the social network site and that the murder was prompted by Vineet’s extreme hurt and anger when he found out that Jyoti had lied to him.
