Agartala: Two teenaged girls committed suicide after their hostel superintendent and parents rebuked them for using mobile phones, police said here Saturday.

Three class 10 girls of the Takarjala higher secondary school in Western Tripura were reprimanded for secretly using mobile phones which is against the hostel norms, police said.

“After being admonished by the hostel superintendent and parents, the three girls left their hostel Thursday and two of them committed suicide by hanging from a tree near the school,” a police spokesman said.

Police recovered the bodies of 16-year-olds Sima Debbarma and Bina Debbarma late Friday and are probing the incident.

Sipahijala district police chief Pradip Dey told IANS: “According to the medical reports, there is no sign of rape of the two girls. Forensic team collected necessary samples and materials from the spot. We are looking into all possibilities.” (IANS)
