Press Trust of India  |  Thane (Maha) 

A 27-year-old woman from Mumbra here allegedly killed her four-year-old daughter before committing suicide today, police said.

Shirin Hanik Khan pushed her daughter Amrin and son Taukif (7) from the 15th floor of a Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) building, a senior police official of Shil-Daighar police station said.

Later Shirin jumped from the building located in Rashid Compound. The woman along with her children went to the building on the pretext of looking for a new flat, he said.

While Shirin and Amrin died on the spot, Taukif sustained injuries and was rushed to a hospital, the officer added.

Prima facie, frequent quarrels with her husband is the reason for Shirin taking the extreme step, police said, adding a case was registered.
