Two girls commit suicide

Two girls were believed to have committed suicide by drinking insecticide in separate instances on Sunday.

Santi, 17, a resident of Ciledug, South Jakarta, was found dead in her room with foam coming from her mouth, Suara Karya reported.

A few hours later Nur Ainun, 20, was found dead near the Soekarno-Hatta airport in Cengkareng, with foam also coming from her mouth. A can of insecticide was found near her body, the daily said, quoting police sources.

Police ruled out the possibility that the two girls were murdered because no wounds were found on their bodies.(bas)
