Thane: Woman throws kids to death from 15th floor


A homemaker, Shirin Khan, threw her two kids from the fifteenth floor of an under-development working in Mumbra on Sunday morning and later jumped off herself.

Shirin and her little girl, Amrin (4), died on the spot, while child, Taufik (7), is doing combating for his life in JJ Hospital. The police are yet to figure out what incited Shirin to make the outrageous stride. Shirin lived in Kausa and her husband is an air-conditioning technician. The police are yet to recoup a suicide note.

“Shirin went by the site of the under-development working around 11am. She informed the security watch that she needed to see an example level as she was keen on purchasing a house. She even went by the business office to enquire about pads yet didn’t fill a client prerequisite frame, saying that she couldn’t read,” said S P Patil, inspector (crime) from Shil-Daighar police station.

“She went to the building’s fifteenth floor and tossed Taufik, who fell first on a metal sheet and after that hit the ground. She then flung Amrin and jumped. Shirin and her little girl passed on the spot,” Patil included.

Taufik was taken to a private hospital and after that to Thane’s Civil Hospital and later moved to J J hospital. He has endured wounds to his back and head.

“Khan’s wife was snoozing at the season of the incident,” said Patil.
