A tragic love story: Flourished on Orkut, died in a bullet
Orkut is in news again and this time due to the tragic death of Koushambi Layek who was murdered by her lover Manish Thakur, with whom she had developed relations on This incident again points towards the hazards of social networking.
WHEN EVERY BIG business house is running a business of social networking website, owned by Google continues to be in the centre of controversy for one wrong reason or another. This time Orkut finds itself in the midst of a murder mystery. The reason for murder is believed to be failed love which developed on Orkut.
This love story started in the AC three tier compartment. The accused Manish Thakur, a resident of Bashdroni in West Bengal, was on his way to Thiruvantapuram where he met Koushambi Layek who was on her way to the training centre of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). The relation gradually evolved through scrapping on Orkut. After some time Koushambi discovered that Manish was married. Heartbroken she ended her relation with him, but was threatened by Manish again and again. Koushambi confided to her parents about the incidence and they tried to sort out the problem by talking with Manish.
Unfortunately the talks did not help and the police discovered her dead body in Mumbai’s Sun-a-Sheel hotel’s room number 202. After a thorough investigation it was found that Manish had killed her by his service revolver.
Manish, who works with the coast guard, has been arrested. Police sources confirm about taking him to Mumbai today.
Meanwhile Manish’s and Koushambi’s profiles have drawn thousands of visitors in the past two days on orkut. There has been a formation of two communities in the name ‘Tribute to Koushambi Layek’ and ‘Koushambi cry for Justice’. The number of registered members in these two communities is increasing rapidly. Many visitors are also visiting Manish’s profile to express strong reactions.
It perhaps will not be a very good idea to blame this social networking website. But this incident definitely shows the flipside of social networking on the Internet and the best thing one can do is be careful while using it in order to avoid unpleasant incidents and such mishaps.
