This is a picture message that has been circulating on Facebook and other social media platforms since few years now. It claims to show a family of three who have committed suicide hanging themselves – after the girl named Sushmita’s photos were supposedly stolen from Facebook and ‘misused’. It is not a fact.

About the Claim

The story that circulates with the picture says that the girl Sushmita uploaded her photos on Facebook, from where a guy stole them all and created a fake account on her name — announcing that she is a call girl. Further, it is said that, the girl, who supposedly comes from a decent family, were all shocked to hear this news that spread everywhere in the city – because of which they committed the suicide at the same time. The story also warns girls on Facebook not to upload their original photos and make sure to choose only good friends to see them. Fortunately, the said story is not a fact!

Facts about the Picture

The picture in question was originally shared on on 21 March 2007 by Shailendra Pandey, a National Photo Editor working for Patrika Group in India. The photo is titled “Triple Suicide – Mother, Son and daughter“. From the Editor, we learnt that the photo was taken around 2003 or 2004 (before Facebook came into being in early 2004) in Moradabad, in Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It shows a mother, son and daughter all three hanging in what was reported  as suicide by police after the initial investigation.

To Conclude

The picture in question does show a mother, son and daughter hanging in a reported suicide, but it is no way related to stealing photos of the girl from Facebook and misusing them. The incident happened before Facebook was present, so the claim in the story is out of context, fabricated one. Sharing such hoax stories will only spread unwarranted fears. Having said that, as detailed in our article here, as a safety measure, it is certainly advisable for girls to be careful while sharing their pictures on Facebook and other social networking platforms.
