Parents test school liability in bullying and child suicide

CINCINNATI (AP) — The parents of an 8-year-old Ohio boy who hanged himself from his bunk bed with a necktie want school officials held responsible, testing the issue of school liability in suicides blamed on bullying.

The wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of Gabriel Taye against Cincinnati Public Schools and school officials cites repeated examples of Gabriel and others being bullied at his elementary school.

Twisted tale of child sexual abuse, ‘sextortion’ from Bengaluru: Teen trapped online

Like most teenagers, 13-year-old Sandeep* from Bengaluru’s Herohalli, would spend hours on Facebook every day.

Towards the end of April, Tejal Patel began sending pornographic images of a certain girl to Sandeep. It is unclear whether Tejal Patel is a man or woman and from where the account was being operated.  He had also received Sandeep’s nude photographs a few months into the chatting.

According to an investigating officer with the Cyber Crime Police, sometime in May, Tejal Patel stopped sending the pornographic images, which Sandeep was hooked to by then.

“Sandeep kept asking Tejal Patel for more pictures. This was when the first
