A 14-year-old school girl committed suicide last October after being bullied by her classmates on the Internet in Saitama City, the prefectural education board revealed Monday. According to officials of the education board, the girl hanged herself at her house on the morning of Oct 10.
She left a note in which she said she wished she could get revenge on the classmates who posted insulting messages on her online profile site.
The officials said the girl transferred to a junior high school in the city from Yokohama last June. Her two classmates posted insulting messages about her last July, but later apologized to her, according to board officials.
The girl's parents said they first thought their daughter committed suicide because they scolded her on Oct 9 over her test results. They didn't find the note until November.
The education board officials denied that the cause of the girl's suicide was bullying.© News reports
