Two teenage girls of ethnic minority were found dead in Jangal Mahadevpur hilly village of Sitakunda upazila in Chattogram district on Friday night.

The deceased are Sukhlati Tripura, 15, daughter of a certain Falin Tripura and Chhobi Rani Tripura, 12, daughter of one Sumon Tripura of the village.

On information, police recovered the bodies from a house in Tripura Para around 8:00pm and sent those to Chittagong Medical College Hospital for autopsy, said Sitakunda police station officer-in-charge (investigation) Mozammel Haq.

The cause of their death could not be known immediately, he added.

Sukhlati Tripura’s father alleged that one Abul Hossain and his associates killed the girls after ‘rape’ as his daughter rejected love proposal.

They hanged the bodies after pouring poison in their mouth in a bid to show the incident as suicide, he claimed.
