The man and the woman, both 23 years old, were from Ladakh, they said.
Police said a one-page suicide note was left behind by the man and the woman had left behind a two-page suicide note.
Police did not share any details of the suicide notes.
Both the students had sustained injuries to their necks and two knives were recovered from inside the flat, they said.
During the initial inquiry, it was learnt that the man used to stay alone in a flat at Jamia Nagar’s Batla House area, while the woman was residing at Vijay Nagar in the North Campus, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), South East, RP Meena, said.
