The police said that around noon, the two girls were found unconscious on a pavement on Mosque Road. Passersby, who noticed the them, called the police. The police then took the unconscious girls to a private hospital. The doctors declared Shazia, daughter of a vegetable vendor, brought dead and asked the police to shift Rakhia, daughter of a beef stall owner, to a bigger hospital as her condition was critical.

The police rushed Rakhia to another hospital and she was hospitalised. But she did not respond to the treatment and died around 11 pm, added police.

Meanwhile, the police established their identities and informed their parents. Preliminary investigations revealed that the girls were studying together and were each in love with two boys for the past few months.
