London, Dec 23 (ANI): A model crowned the Face of Asia has fallen 150ft to her death from a luxury block of flats in Greater Manchester after finding out her boyfriend was married.
Sahar Daftary, 23, a Londoner, fell from the 12th storey of the ultra-modern NV buildings in Salford Quays.
Daftary, who won the Face of Asia contest in 2007, is thought to have visited the flat to collect her belongings after pulling out of a fashion show earlier in the day, claiming ill-health.
Friends said the model was distraught to discover subsequently that he was married.
A friend said Daftary had the "world at her feet" but was unhappy after her love-split.
"We are all shocked and devastated. Sahar was very beautiful - she loved life and she was always the centre of the party," Times Online quoted Daftary's pal, Afrah Sami, as telling the Manchester Evening News.
"She met him 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 she became very unhappy. The stress changed her and she had stopped eating properly," Sami added.
The boyfriend, who has not been named, was arrested and questioned by police but has since been bailed.
"Inquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances of the incident," a spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said. (ANI)
