Pregnant Indian woman jumps to her death in UAE

In a heart rending incident, a pregnant Indian woman fell to her death from the seventh floor of a high-rise building in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The police, prima facie believe it to be a case of suicide as there was no evidence of any foul play.

Though the woman resided on the third floor of the building, however, on the day of the incident, she went to her friend's flat located on the seventh floor.

Residents told the daily, “She had a chat with her, after which she asked for a glass of water. The friend went to the kitchen to get the water, but when she came out, she couldn't find the woman. Fearing the worst, the friend woke her husband up, who realised the woman had jumped from the balcony."

Police and ambulances were rushed to the scene of the incident after receiving reports about a woman falling from the balcony.

The team found the woman dead at the spot. Initial examinations revealed that she died from internal bleeding and severe damage to her skull.

The police detained a number of relatives and acquaintances to find whether there was any foul play. However, they have not found any evidence of such so far.
