A woman in Ludhiana has sought permission from the President of India, Ram Nath Kovind, for 'Right to Death' because she is being continuously harassed by a man. She has also pleaded with  the National Commission for Woman to let her end her life.

According to Times Of India, the woman has alleged that the man has been stalking her on social media and WhatsApp for long time. And that's not all. The accused has also been morphing her pictures and spreading it on social media to defame her.

After continuous harassment, the woman filed a complaint against the man on July 7. But alleged that he has still not been arrested.

In an interview to the daily, she said, "After complaint, the accused created my fake profile on Facebook and started sending messages to my female friends. He also posted my morphed naked pictures on social media and threatened to ruin my life. He also told me that he has taken my number from the advertisement board of my boutique."

She also went to say that she is asking for the right to death because the police hasn't caught the perpetrator yet. " The police have failed to do anything in this case and the harassment still continues. Therefore I'm demanding for the right to death," she added.

According to the police, they haven't been able to make an arrest because the woman didn't name him in her complaint. "The suspected youth was rounded up. However, during his custody the chat on the woman's phone was on. So, there could be another person involved. The police are investigating the case with the assistance of cyber cell," a police officer said.

The thing is despite the exponential rise in the number of harassment cases filed by women, there's hardly anything that has changed. The saddest part here is that the woman thought that death will be the only way out of this mess. What we need is a clear intervention and speedy justice so that such cases can be dealt with emergency.
