A woman died after she fell from the terrace of a five-storey building while apparently playing with her pet dog in Hyderabad, but her parents suspect foul play, the police said on Saturday.
Ladlee Mudiraj, 24, an employee of Amazon, fell from the fifth floor of her apartment building in Kukatpally area in the early hours of Friday.
Her husband Saiprasad Mudiraj and his sister Sudha Rani told the police that Ladlee was playing with the pet around 3.30am.
They said when she sat on the railing and the dog sprang at her, she lost balance and fell.
She was rushed to a private hospital, where she succumbed. Ladlee’s parents, however, blamed her husband for her death. They said they were raising doubts as to why their daughter would go to the terrace at the odd hour and that too in cold.
Saiprasad and Ladlee married in 2015 against the wishes of her parents. The police said they have registered a case of death in suspicious circumstances.
