News : Facebook threats then death for matric pupil

Persistent bullying and threats of assault on a social networking website allegedly drove an Isipingo matric girl to end her life on Thursday.

Strelitzia Secondary School pupil Shaista Singh, 17, of Willowcreek Place, Isipingo Rail, was found hanged by her younger sister Quraysha, 14, and neighbour Vishnu Rajkoomar, 50, an insurance broker. Her school tie was around her neck and tied to a burglar-guard in her grandfather's bedroom


Single mother Yesheka, 49, a training manager, said her daughter had been slapped and kicked outside the school gates in May by another female pupil, who said she did not "like the look of her face". Mrs Singh said a doctor had treated Shaista for her injuries and they had opened a case of assault at the Isipingo Police Station. She said the matter was thrown out of court because a prosecutor had informed her that it was a "petty issue".

"After the incident Shaista became very anxious and was afraid of going to school. The threats made by the girl who assaulted her, on Facebook, also intimidated Shaista. I have a print-out of the girl's Facebook page where she threatened to hit my daughter.

"On Thursday morning we had a cup of tea together and she appeared normal. There were no signs that she was going to end her life."

School principal Nanda Nair said he was aware of the incident but "my hands are tied as it happened outside the gates". IOL
