Kubra’s uncle, Nebi Dogan, reportedly has plans for the family to “sue the contractor”, according to The Daily Mail.
On account of ‘flimsy’ panelling, Nebi spoke out: “We will not let him go. As soon as the girl puts her foot down, [the panel] breaks and she falls to the ground from the ninth floor.”

Kubra’s body will reportedly be taken to her hometown of Midyat in the Mardin province of Turkey.
