Teen leaves home for Facebook lover, scurries back from eunuch

Family members registered a case of kidnapping but the heartbroken girl returned home well before police could open a probe

Patna: A teenaged girl in Bihar had a bitter experience of falling in love with a Facebook friend after the latter turned out to a eunuch when she fled her home to meet him.


The girl, a resident of Gopalpur locality in Gopalganj district, had accepted a friend request from a ‘youth’ from neighbouring Motihari town in East Champaran district some two years back.

In due course, both started chatting frequently over Facebook and she ultimately fell in love with the stranger whom she had never met in her life. She relied more on her Facebook friend than her friends in the neighbourhood, as per reports.

Earlier this week, she fled her home to meet her ‘boyfriend’ in Motihari but her entire world came crashing down very soon when she found her supposed lover to be a eunuch.

In the meanwhile, the girl’s family members registered a case of kidnapping with the local police. However, much before the police began investigation in the case, the girl returned home to narrate her heartbreak to family members.

Subsequently, the police got her medical test conducted at a local hospital and recorded her statement in the court. “She is very shocked and shattered,” the police told the local media.

This is the second case in recent times where Facebook chatting has become the undoing of women. Earlier, a married woman in Bihar eloped with a youth leaving behind her first husband and two children after striking up a romance with the youth during the course of Facebook chatting.
