On January the 2nd a harrowing incident took place in the Gulshan-e-Iqbal area of Karachi. Maryam, 35 was reported to have leaped off a six-story building, after throwing her 2-year-old daughter, Iman first.
Videos of the scene are surfacing on social media sites. Maryam can be seen dropping Iman from the building and then diving herself.
The daughter surprisingly survived the fall as the inhabitants of the area draped the ground in vehicle covers. As per the police, Maryam was taken to the hospital in a hurry where she and her daughter are currently in a better condition.
What actually happened?
According to reports, Maryam first dropped her cell phone to capture the attention of the people below. The passers-by then attempted to convince her to not leap.
The passers-by spread vehicle covers on the ground in an attempt to save the two. However, as Maryam was trying to climb down the balcony, she slipped and received an injury to the leg.
What has the Karachi Police revealed?
The Karachi Police found out initially that Maryam was in fact a drug addict. This was the claim of her in-laws who kept her locked inside the sixth floor of the building.
Maryam was residing with her second husband, who had confined her to a room to prevent her drug usage. It is being told that Maryam attempted suicide after not leaving her house for a while.
Her side of the incident, however, has not been discovered yet. An investigation is still going on, and it is hoped that the matter is sorted out as soon as possible.
