Cops search home of newlywed bride, 31, after she falls to her death in ‘suspicious’ plunge days after ‘happy’ wedding
POLICE are today searching the home of a newlywed who fell to her death in a “suspicious” cliff plunge days after her wedding.
Fawziyah Javed, 31, was declared dead at the scene in Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh after the horror on Thursday night.
A 27-year-old man has been arrested as part of the police investigation into her death, which is being treated as suspicious.
Police were today pictured at Fawziyah’s home in West Yorkshire after carrying out searches.
Her father-in-law told how she had got married to his son in December last year but held a reception on Monday.
Fawziyah and her husband then travelled to Scotland for a holiday together.
The father-in-law told The Sun Online: “They were very happy.
“They were married in December, last year, and had a marriage party at the Aakash restaurant, in Cleckheaton, on Monda.
“It was a very good party, everyone was happy.
“On Tuesday afternoon they went to Edinburgh for their holiday. It was just a holiday, not a honeymoon.”
Fawziyah worked at Lyons Davidson Solicitors in Leeds and was also involved in charity work.
A source claimed she was thought to be in the early stages of a pregnancy before her death.
Fawziyah’s cousin has now issued a heartbreaking plea and said her death had left a “hole in our lives”.
He added: “We want justice.”
Tributes have also flooded in for Fawziyah following her tragic death.
Her uncle Zareef Zaf Latif said: “Fawziyah, our precious niece, taken away from us way too soon. Have so many memories of you as a little girl.
“Will miss you so much. May Allah grant you a special place in Jannat. I hope the angels take care of you until we meet again.”
While a neighbour sobbed: “I am very upset about her death, she was a very nice person.
“She had lived there for nine to 10 months. She was a beautiful person and seemed very sensible.
“Yesterday I was all day crying.”
Police said: “We received a report that a woman had fallen from Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh, around 9pm on Thursday, 2 September.
“Emergency services attended including the fire service and ambulance.
“The 31-year-old woman died at the scene a short time later and her death is being treated as suspicious.
“A 27-year-old man has been arrested and enquiries are ongoing.
