A 16-year-old daughter of a diamond merchant cooked up a story of being stalked on social media, getting threatening messages and being attacked by an unknown person, apparently after developing a feeling of being neglected by her family, the police said. The incident came to light after the police conducted preliminary investigations into the complaint lodged by the college student. She claimed a man entered the flat and strangulated her,” said a police officer who did not wish to be named. When the watchman told them he did not see anyone entering the gate, the police suspected that someone from the building had attacked her. The police did not find anything in the CCTV footages and also got suspicious about the claims of the girl about Instagram messages.
