A board of doctors would conduct a re-examination of the bodies at the GTB hospital, Pankaj Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (east), said. A forensic team inspected the place where the family was staying and found some medicine bottles and pills, police said.
The girls' father is missing since Tuesday. He works as a casual labourer. Initially, it seemed to be a case of natural death. However, with the medicine bottles being recovered, cops want to make sure that there was no foul play in the death of the girls.
