Two teenagers – a girl and a boy – were found hanging inside a hotel room in Delhi’s Dwarka Sector 17 on Friday evening.
The bodies were recovered at around 4 pm from an Oyo Rooms hotel after the girl and the boy failed to check out.
The two had check in to the hotel on Thursday evening and were supposed to check out on Friday at noon. However, after they failed to emerge from the room, hotel staff knocked on the room’s door at noon but did not receive an answer.
At around 3 pm, the staff once again knocked on the door but failed to elicit an answer for the second time. Following this, hotel authorities informed Delhi Police, which sent a team to the location.
Police officials then broke open the door at around 4 pm and discovered the boy and girl hanging from a ceiling fan inside.
Initial investigation into the incident points to suicide, but notably, no suicide note was recovered from the room. The boy and the girl are believed to be around 18 to 19 years old, but Delhi Police has said they suspect the boy could be a few months younger than 18.
Cops have identified the two as residents of Delhi and have informed their respective parents. The case is currently being investigated from multiple angles and cops have been able to determine that the boy, while leaving his house on Thursday, had said that he was heading to his tuition class.
