NOIDA: A woman and her 11-year-old daughter have been found dead in their flat near here and a blood-stained cricket bat recovered from the room, police said on Wednesday.

The woman's 16-year-old son was missing and police is probing his possible involvement in the murder, a police officer told IANS.

The bodies of Anjali Agarwal, 42, and her daughter Manikarnika were found in a bedroom of their flat on 11th Avenue of Gaur City 2 at Greater Noida around 11.30 p.m. on Tuesday, police said. The flat was locked from outside.

The officer said the bat could have been used to bludgeon the two to death but they were waiting for the autopsy report to confirm the cause of death.

Agarwal's husband Soumya Agarwal, who was away at the time of the incident, after being unable to reach her over phone called their relatives.

Upon finding the flat locked, the relatives informed the police.
