Twin brothers fell to their deaths off a high-rise building on Sunday, in the city of Ghaziabad in India. Police are now investigating the cause of their death.

Surya Narayan and Satya Narayan, two Indian boys currently attending Class 9, fell off the 25th-floor balcony of their apartment building, India Today reported.

Their mother and sister were said to be sleeping in a separate room when the incident happened. According to officials, the incident occurred around 1 a.m., an hour after the siblings' mom told them to sleep. The twins, however, insisted on watching the moon.

"After that, she went to her room and some time later there was a thud which woke her up," the official noted, according to the Times of India. She rushed to their room and found that the kids have fallen off the balcony.

“Following the information conveyed, a police team rushed to the spot, and both the victims were rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared them brought dead,” Mahipal Singh, Ghaziabad circle officer, told India Today.

The father of the boys was in Mumbai on a business trip during the incident, leaving only the mother and the sister to take care of funeral arrangements once the body is returned to the family, NDTV reported.

The community has been in shock over the death, and many are asking whether the death was an accident or a suicide attempt. Police officers are currently investigating the cause of death, saying it is too soon to comment on this theory.

“The police are looking for post-mortem reports to ascertain the actual reason for their death. As of now, we have not received any complaint into the matter,” Singh told the press.
