KUALA LUMPUR, May 15: A Malaysian teenager who posted an Instagram poll asking if she should live or die took her life after a majority of respondents said yes, sparking calls for an investigation.
The unidentified 16-year-old from Kuching in Sarawak died after posting the poll on Monday on the Facebook-owned picture sharing platform.
Police have classified the case as "sudden death".
"Really Important, Help Me Choose D/L," she wrote, according to a report on the news portal Astro Awani, with the letters "D" and "L" apparently referring to "die" or "live" respectively.
Sixty-nine percent of votes cast were in favour of her ending her life, with just 31 percent against, local media quoted police as saying.    -AFP
