Two sisters were found murdered in their rented accommodation in Sector 22 on Thursday, the police said, adding that sharp-edged weapons were used in the crime.
The victims -- Manpreet Kaur and Rajwant Kaur -- were working at a chemical factory in Zirakpur, near here. Hailing from Fazilka district in Punjab, they were staying in the rented accommodation for the past three years.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Nilambari Jagdale said that sharp-edged weapons were used in the crime.
This is the second heinous crime to have taken place in Chandigarh in less than a fortnight.
The blood-soaked bodies of an elderly couple were found under mysterious circumstances from their residence in Sector 40 on August 4. The couple had deep wounds on their necks and bodies.
