    girlssuicide_288Kolkata: Two teenaged girls were found dead in the courtyard of an 18-storey apartment block in a posh housing complex in the southern fringe of the city on Tuesday, police said.

    Police suspected that Sabiba Chandana and Neha Panjari, both aged 15 and students of class IX of the same school, committed suicide by jumping from the roof of the building.

    While Sabiba was a resident of the housing complex off EM Bypass under East Jadavpur police station, Neha had come to visit her, police said.

    No suicide note, however, was found.

    Even as joint commissioner, crime is said to be making efforts to ascertain the motive for suicides, priliminary investigations hinted that there was some tension between Sabiba's parents and the two girls over their 'friendship'.

    According to reports, the girls were scolded by Sabiba's parents for getting late that may have led them to take the extreme step. It was learnt that first Sabiba's father scolded the girls for being late for school and then her mother told them off, triggering an argument.

    The incident occurred 11 days after a woman and her two daughters jumped to death from a 36-storey building in a suspected suicide pact. According to police, they were suffering from depression after the recent death of the woman's husband.
