Kolkata: 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 suspect that Sabiba Chandana and Neha Panjari, both aged 15 and students of class IX, committed suicide by jumping from the roof of the building.
No suicide note, however, was found.
Police claim that the friendship between the two girls has been a cause of tension between their families.
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.
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.
