New Delhi, June 23 (IANS) Depressed over the death of their parents a few years ago, two sisters in their 20s committed suicide here, police said on Thursday.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, Vikramjit Singh told IANS, "We received a call on Wednesday afternoon about the incident. Two sisters committed suicide by hanging themselves from the ceiling fan after locking themselves in a room."

"Both of them might be depressed due to the death of their parents three to four years ago, and it might be one of the reasons for the extreme step," the DCP said.

The deceased have been identified as Seema, 26, and Parul, 20, both residents of Rohini in west Delhi.

Both the women were staying with their elder brother and sister-in-law here.

"Seema used to work as a teacher in a nearby school while Parul was pursuing her studies," the DCP said.

No suicide note has been recovered from the spot, a senior police officer said, adding, "We don't feel any foul play in the incident."

The bodies have been sent for autopsy.
