The police were informed by the neighbours that the two girls aged 14 and 22 had been locked inside the house. The two girls said that they woke up on October 29th only to find their door locked.
The 22 year old who is a student at Multimedia University said that their mother who was living at her friend’s house would bring them food everyday through the window.
