Sharjah: Sharjah Police have launched an investigation after a Pakistani woman reportedly jumped to her death from the third-floor balcony of her apartment building in the Muwailih area of Sharjah.
According to police, the incident happened last Thursday after midnight. The 21-year-old woman, identified as S.A., jumped from the balcony and fell to her death. Her skull reportedly burst open on impact.
