- The incident happened in Barola village in Sector 49 of Noida
- Family has accused a distant relative of murdering the girls
- In 2014, two cousins were found hanging from tree in Badaun
The two lived at Barola village in Sector 49 of Noida. Their family first saw their room locked from outside before spotting their bodies around 4 am.
The family has accused a distant relative, Ravi, and his family of murdering the girls.
The girls' parents claim that Ravi was married but he was still trying to force the older sister to marry him.
Luv Kumar, a senior police officer in Noida, said, "We are investigating and waiting for the post-mortem. I can't say if it's a murder or suicide yet. Prima facie no signs of assault were found on the bodies of the girls."
The deaths have left the village in shock.
In 2014, two cousins were found hanging from a tree in Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, a gruesome image that shocked the nation. They were first believed to have been raped and hanged but after several twists and turns, the CBI said there was no evidence and that they had committed suicide.
