PETALING JAYA: A 29-year-old Mongolian woman died after falling from the sixth floor of a condominium balcony in Taman Maluri, Cheras, today.
Wangsa Maju police chief Supt Mohamad Roy Suhaimi Sarif said the woman's body was found lying on the ground floor of the parking area in the vicinity of the condominium in the 11.26am incident.
Police arrived on the scene few minutes after receiving a call from a woman believed to be staying at the same condominium.
Mohamad Roy said police found several pieces of broken glass in the condominium unit.
"The broken glass was from a dining table in the unit in which the victim was staying with three other Mongolian women," he added.
Mohamad Roy said a neighbour told police that she overheard noise and shouting voices like women having a fight, before the incident happened.
"The three women cannot communicate in English and only one of them owned a valid travel document," said Mohamad Roy.
Meanwhile, a 34-year-old witness, who did not wish to be identified, told theSun that she heard loud women's voices just a few minutes before the incident.
"I was on the ground floor to take my kids swimming when I heard some women shouting. As I turned my head around, I saw a body fall and I heard a loud bang as the body fell on the carpark zinc.
"I was shivering and scared. I quickly told another woman who was at the parking lot to call 999," she told theSun.
Mohamad Roy said the body was taken to Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital (HUKM).
Police meanwhile said three housemates of the woman have been detained to facilitate investigations into the case.
