LUCKNOW: In a shocking incident, two sisters, who had gone missing on Saturday evening, were found hanging from a tree outside their village Dhumanan Deeppur village under Gunnaur police station area of Sambhal district on Sunday morning. Their family members brought down the bodies and took them home before the police arrived. 

Later, the police convinced villagers to hand over the bodies to them for post-mortem examination in order to ascertain the cause of death. 

However, as per police sources, the relatives of two teenage sisters — Kavita Yadav (19) and Seema Yadav (18) — claimed that both might have taken the extreme step after being reprimanded over some household chores. Some neighbours said that the two were miffed as the family had fixed their marriage without taking them into confidence. 

The father of the two girls, Ramveer Singh Yadav, said that after waking up at 5am on Sunday, he spotted his two daughters hanging from the tree outside his house. 

“The bodies have been sent for autopsy. The cause of death will be clear once the post-mortem report comes and we will take further course of action after that, “ SHO, Gunnar police, said.
