The deceased, M Tejaswini, 22, and her younger sister M Ranjitha, 20, were enrolled at a private college in Channasandra and in their final and second year of their engineering studies respectively. The city police said that Tejaswini’s father Malleshappa, owner of a provision store, on Monday night broached the topic of marriage with his elder daughter as he felt that it was time for her to get married. He also revealed of his plans to look for a suitable boy for his younger daughter, Ranjita. On Monday night, after Malleshappa disclosed his plans, Tejaswini confessed to being in a relationship; Ranjita, too, came forward and confessed to being in love with a boy. According to the police, a bitterly disappointed Malleshappa had an argument with his two daughters for a long time. The three went to bed around 12 midnight. Around 3.30am, Malleshappa woke up and went to check on his daughters but instead found them hanging from both ends of the same sari which had been tied to a fan, said the police. Malleshappa rushed his daughters to a nearby hospital but they were declared brought dead. Later, he informed the Madiwala police about the incident. The police have registered a case of unnatural death. The police also found a suicide note in the girls’ room. “The girls did not blame anybody for their suicide. They expressed regret for disappointing their father and family and asked for forgiveness. They did not mention any specific reason for their extreme step,” said MB Boralingaiah, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South- East division).
