The teenager who has been described as suicidal is also said to have been suspended from school over indiscipline.

“The teenage student in question was earlier suspended from school over indiscipline, she was even walking with a matchbox in the school,” an officer said.

The student is said to have threatened to do something dreadful after her parents refused to move her to a different school.

Word has it that she tried to take her life after being suspended but was later re-admitted.

Families of the deceased have been asked to submit DNA samples for body identification which could take two weeks or more.

The bodies burnt beyond recognition are being held at the Chiromo Mortuary.
