Man, 27, charged with murder after newlywed bride, 31, fell to her death from cliff in ‘suspicious’ plunge after wedding


A MAN has been charged with murder after a newlywed woman fell to her death in a “suspicious” cliff plunge from a landmark in Edinburgh.

Kashif Anwar, 27, is charged with the death of Fawziyah Javed, 31, who was declared dead at the scene in Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh after the horror on last Thursday night.

Police and emergency services were called at about 9pm, but Ms Javed died at the scene.

Kashif Anwar, 27, appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday where he made no plea.

He has been remanded in custody and is due to reappear in court within the next eight days.

Ms Javed got married last year – but celebrated at a reception in West Yorkshire on Sunday, before travelling to Scotland.

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.”

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.

Police are understood to have been searching a home in Pudsey, West Yorks, in connection with the probe.

A statement last week 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.”
