The estranged husband of the Queens mom suspected of savagely beating their twin toddlers — one fatally — flung himself to his death from the top of a Midtown hotel, where his twisted body was discovered on Saturday, police sources told The Post.
Mohammad Torabi, 31, was found at 1:20 p.m., sprawled atop a third-floor air-conditioning unit at the Renaissance New York Hotel on East 57th Street.
Police believe he plunged from the roof of the 17-story hotel sometime Friday and had been dead for a day before he was spotted.
The unemployed Manhattan man left behind no note, but police say they are investigating the death as a suicide.
News of Torabi’s death came as his wife, Tina, 30, sat in Rikers for the near-fatal beating of their 13-month-old son, Kian — and as coroners prepared an autopsy report on his twin sister, Elaina, who was found dying in the family’s Flushing home on Wednesday night.
Both twins suffered “severe body trauma,” police have said.
By Saturday night, the mom remained charged only with “depraved indifference” assault, alleging that her reckless conduct created a grave risk of Kian’s death.
The charge does not specify if she allegedly beat him; she is also not charged in the girl’s death.
She has remained mum to cops.
Meanwhile, police sources revealed investigators had been looking to question the father, who had a history of drug abuse and domestic violence against the mother.
He was convicted in Texas of misdemeanor and felony assaults against family members in 2015, records show.
“Maybe he’s the one who did all that stuff to his daughter,” one investigative source speculated. “He must have thought, ‘I’m going to jail now.’”
The husband’s death-plunge ended a troubled marriage marred by drugs and violence.
Mohammad and Tina, a pharmacy technician, married in Houston in 2012 and lived in Texas before moving to New York to be near his relatives. Sources familiar with the case have said Mohammad at some point turned his wife on to drugs.
The twins were on the city’s radar since they were born last year with opioids in their systems.
Tina won an order of protection against Mohammed last January. It has been repeatedly renewed and ran through Oct. 10, one city source has said.
