Delhi air-hostess death case: Crime Branch takes over probe
New Delhi, Aug 1: The Crime Branch has taken over probe into the alleged suicide of a female flight attendant in south Delhi's Panchsheel Park last month, police said on Wednesday.
Anissia Batra, who worked with a German airline, had allegedly jumped from the terrace of her house on July 13.
On July 16, the Delhi Police arrested Singhvi and subsequently sent him to a 14-day judicial custody in connection with the case.
According to the police, Batra had a fight with her husband at around 4:30 pm on July 13, after which she jumped off the terrace. The deceased's family alleged that Singhvi harassed her daughter for dowry and used to torture her.
Anissia's parents told police that Mayank had thrashed her daughter on the second day of their honeymoon in Dubai.
The air-hostess came to know that Mayank Singhvi was a divorcee a month ago. They had got married on February 23, 2016, and it was a love marriage. Police have said the probe so far has indicated that Anissia "jumped" to her death and was not killed as alleged by some of her relatives.
