Model fall death after break-up

lunes, 22 de diciembre de 2008 |

A stunning model with "the world at her feet" fell to her death from a block of flats after a love-split.

Sahar Daftary, 23, from London, fell around 150 feet from the 12th storey of the NV Buildings on Salford Quays, Greater Manchester, just before 10pm on Saturday night.

The former Face of Asia winner is understood to have been to the flat to collect her belongings after her relationship broke down with her boyfriend over the summer.

He was arrested and has been bailed.

Ms Daftary was also in Manchester to appear on the catwalk at a fashion show at an Indian restaurant on Saturday evening.


But cancelled at the last minute saying she was sick.

Pal Afrah Sami said: "We are all shocked and devastated. Sahar was very beautiful - she loved life and she was always the centre of the party.

"She met him (the boyfriend) in Manchester and they were very happy.

"Then she won the Face of Asia competition and got several big contracts. She seemed to have the world at her feet.

"But she discovered that he was married and became very unhappy.

"The stress changed her and she had stopped eating properly.

"When she came up on Saturday she was very distracted and preoccupied with collecting her things from the apartment, but he didn't want to see her."


Residents at the posh waterfront block spoke of their shock.

One said: "I don't know the full details of what has happened but it sounds like a terrible tragedy.

"I've only seen her here once or twice and she seems friendly enough. I didn't see or hear anything until I looked out and saw the police.

"My heart goes out to her family."

Another resident said: "I looked out and saw people standing around something on the floor and I instantly assumed someone had fallen or jumped from the flats."

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “Inquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances of the incident.”

A resident at the waterfront apartment block, where apartments have sold for up to £800,000, said: “We were out for the evening and when we came back, the police had cordoned off part of the car park.

"There were a couple of police vans at the front of the building.

“The police said a young woman had fallen from the 12th floor.”
