Police say the two young women left their village on the afternoon of their deaths without saying anything to their families

“I promised to get them for her… The clothes will arrive in a few days but my daughter is not around to wear them,” he said.

Police are studying the girls’ phones in the hope of establishing a motive.

However, the girls had deleted their WhatsApp chats.

Cops say one of the girls had recently broken up with her boyfriend, telling him that she was seeing another boy, and that could be linked.

 The deaths will be the fourth at the well this year

This is believed to have been the fourth suicide incident at the well in two years and police said they were “tired” of asking local officials to cover it up.

The girls were friends, lived near each other, and both of their parents were rice farmers.

One was still in school while the other had left and had started sewing to make money.

Police say they had left their village on the afternoon of their deaths without saying anything to their families.

One of the girl’s fathers said a local boy saw them walking in the direction of the well but they asked him not to tell anyone he had seen them.

 The well is located near the girls home in Mumbai's Goregaon suburb
