A 35-year-old woman, Imrana, was thrown off the terrace of her third-floor apartment in Ghaziabad by an acquaintance following a heated argument, police said on Monday.

The incident took place on Sunday (October 21) afternoon in Lok Priya Vihar Colony, and the victim succumbed to injuries at a private hospital in Ghaziabad in the night, City Superintendent of Police (SP) Shlok Kumar said.

Based on a complaint filed by the husband of the deceased, an FIR was registered against the accused, Shahid, he said.

During the investigation, it was revealed that the accused had come to meet the woman around 2 pm on Sunday when her husband was out for some work. Shahid and Imrana went to the terrace where they had a heated argument, following which he threw the victim off the terrace and fled from the spot, police said.
