  • A Malaysian teen took her own life after posting an online poll asking if she should live or dieMore

He urged investigators not to close the investigation into the teen's death, and to probe her social media accounts to see who had spurred her towards killing herself.

"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.

"Various questions arise from this unfortunate incident".

After the death of a 16-year-old girl who was believed to have committed suicide after running a poll amongst her friends on social media on whether she should end her life, lawyers are calling for those abetting one to attempt suicide to be made an offence as well.

"Would the girl still be alive today if the majority of netizens on her Instagram account discouraged her from taking her own life?" he said in a statement.

'Would she have heeded the advice of netizens to seek professional help had they done so?

The girl is also known to have a history of battling with depression. "How some netizens could have actually condoned this is beyond me".

Wong Ching Yee, Instagram's head of communications in the Asia-Pacific, revealed that after the poll ran for 24 hours, the votes had swung to 88 percent in favor of choosing to keep living.

"We have a deep responsibility to make sure people using Instagram feel safe and supported. As part of our own efforts, we urge everyone to use our reporting tools and to contact emergency services if they see any behaviour that puts people's safety at risk".

The move came in the wake of the death of British teenager Molly Russell, whose parents said she took her own life at the age of 14 after looking at self-harm posts on Instagram.
