New Delhi: After a heated argument with her husband, a woman pushed her two children and then jumped off the third floor of her house here, a police official said on Tuesday, adding that both minors died on the spot.
The incident occurred late on Monday in Lalita Park of Laxmi Nagar. Neighbours heard a loud thump and informed the police.
Aliya, 34, mother of seven-year-old Mehak, and three-year-old Aafraan pushed the two children from her balcony. Aafraan landed on the ground, while his sister and mother fell on the first floor balcony, a senior police officer from Laxmi Nagar police station said.
“Aliya has been admitted to the LBS hospital, and is critical,” he added.
“Probe suggests Aliya took the extreme step after her husband, Munawar Ali, left the house following their argument,” he added.
“A Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) inquiry has been ordered into the incident and we are questioning Munawar Ali,” he added.
