After being locked inside a auto for over two hours on a hot Wednesday afternoon, five-year-old twin sisters died of suffocation in Jamalpur area of Pataudi on the outskirts of Gurugram, Hindustan Times reported on Thursday.

Relatives of the two girls say that the incident could have occurred when the two were playing with puppies and accidentally locked themselves in the auto.

An 18-year old cousin of the girls, usually accompanied the girls when they had gone out to play with the puppies, but unfortunately, the cousin had gone out for some work and could not accompany the twins.

The twins were rushed to a hospital where they were declared brought dead, he said.

According to the girl's uncle Vikram Yadav, the locks of the vehicle don't work and only the front door of the auto opens from the inside.

"As fate would have it, Harsh went to town for some work on Tuesday morning and the girls sneaked out of the house to play with the puppies around 2 p.m". The car's door lock was not working properly and could not be opened from inside. The girls probably got stuck inside the vehicle. Later, the girls were found unconscious in the auto and were rushed to a nearby hospital, where they were declared brought dead by the doctors.

Mr. Yadav recalled that the girls were enrolled in a school in Meerut by their father Gobind, an Army Constable, in April this year. According to media reports, the twins have been identified Harsha and Harshita. Given the excruciating heat, the girls were suffocated and by the time the family found them they had died.

The family members said the girls, along with their mother Kirti and two-year-old brother, had come to their grandfather's house at Jamalpur on June 9 for summer vacations.
