Pakistan: Woman throws child in Jhelum before committing suicide

In a shocking incident, a Pakistani woman threw her preschooler child into the Jhelum River and then jumped into the swollen water channel from a bridge in Muzaffarabad on Thursday.

CCTV footage recorded from the right side of River Jhelum in Domel area showed the long chador clad woman, identified as 38-year-old Robina Safdar, slowly walking through the approach road to the pre-partition era iron bridge at about 9:41am while holding the hand of her son Shahzeb, who appears to be less than five years of age, Dawn News reported.

The iron bridge is mostly used by pedestrians or by two wheelers.

Shaheedur Rehman, in-charge of the relevant Jalalabad police post told Dawn that the woman’s father and spouse had given a statement to them that she was being treated for mental disorders by some physicians in Abbottabad for the past few years.

“But we are conducting investigations into their claims and immediately cannot say anything with certainty,” he said.
