A palpable pall of gloom has descended upon a village at Siphajhar in Assam's Darrang district after two students were allegedly found dead adjacent to each other at a house on Tuesday morning.
The victims have been identified as a class 9 female student and a college student. Their identities are yet to be established.
Preliminary investigations suggest that their deaths may be linked to love-related issues, leading the residents of the region to consider the possibility of a joint suicide.
The incident was reported at Suktaguri No 2 village.
Local police have been informed of the incident and an investigation into the matter is awaited.
