Mumbai News: A 16-year-old girl was seriously injured after she fell while trying to escape from her sixth-floor home through a window by using knotted sarees for support, on Tuesday morning in Versova, the police said.
The girl’s parents had caught her talking to her boyfriend and fearing some kind of admonition from them, she decided to flee her home with a bag full of clothes, a police officer said.
“She knotted several sarees into a rope, tied one end of it to the air-conditioner and tried to climb down through a window. However, she lost her grip during the descent and fell to the ground.
People from the housing complex rushed her to Cooper Hospital,” he said. The officer said the teen has suffered a serious back injury and further investigation into the incident will start after she is medically fit to give a statement on the chain of events.
