Abstract

Now Cyberbullying is not a recent phenomenon. In the age of cyberspace, it becomes a major felony. It is becoming worse every day in the globe as technology advances. It violates a number of human rights. There is a connection between online harassment and human rights. It is connected to one another. When cyberbullying is practiced, there are times when some human rights are infringed. One of these is the right to life. Teenagers now experience the most cyberbullying. They are constantly plugged into technology. They become targets of cyberbullying as a result. There are certain communication applications that teenagers use most often. Social media applications on the internet include WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, the browser, and more. Teenagers can shoot pictures anywhere with ease. The internet and certain social media sites broadcast offensive images, videos, and statements, which have a negative impact on teenage psychology. Cyberbullying is solely done to make kids feel inferior in society. Teenagers are unable to take this kind of cyberbullying and end up taking their own lives. The offender influences the victim towards taking their own life. They do not intend to kill themselves. Evidently, the act in question may be classified as a homicide rather than self-inflicted death. In this context, cyberbullying encroaches upon the basic human right to life for adolescents.
