Family call for ‘justice’ after ‘pregnant’ newlywed bride falls to her death from Arthur’s Seat

Detectives were today seen searching the home of a newlywed who fell to her death from Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh.  

Fawziyah Javed, 31, was declared dead at the scene of the Scottish landmark – an ancient volcano popular among hillwalkers as it is easy to scale – after the horror plunge on Thursday night.

It is thought that Ms Javed, who worked at Lyons Davidson Solicitors in Leeds, was in the early stages of a pregnancy before the incident last week. Police are treating her death as suspicious. 

Officers have been searching a home in Pudsey, West Yorkshire in connection with the probe. A 27-year-old man has been arrested, a statement from Police Scotland confirmed.

Ms Javed’s cousin has now issued a plea for ‘justice’ as he revealed that her death had left a ‘hole in our lives’.

Ms Javed’s father-in-law told The Sun she married his son in December last year but held a reception on Monday, before the pair travelled to Scotland for a holiday.

He 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 Monday. 

‘On Tuesday afternoon they went to Edinburgh for their holiday. It was just a holiday, not a honeymoon.’

In an online tribute, Zareef Zaf Latif wrote: ‘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.’ 

A Police Scotland spokesman said in a statement: ‘We received a report that a woman had fallen from Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh, around 9pm on Thursday, 2 September.
