Delhi air-hostess death case: Court extends interim protection from arresting parents till Sep 17
New Delhi, Aug 2: The Delhi High Court on Thursday extended the interim protection from arresting parents of the husband of a woman flight attendant, who had allegedly committed suicide in the national capital earlier this month, till 17th September.
Anissia, who was working with a German airline, had allegedly jumped from the terrace of her house in Panchsheel Park in South Delhi on July 13 and Mayank had taken her to a nearby hospital, where she was declared brought dead.
Her family has alleged that her husband used to physically abuse her and often demand money from the victim. The family have claimed before the trial court that it was not a suicide, but murder.
On the other hand, Mayank's parents have sought anticipatory bail claiming that they had no role in the matter and any dispute between their son and daughter-in-law was their internal matter.
Mayank, who was married to Anissia for over two years, was arrested on July 16.
Before jumping off the terrace, she had sent a message to her husband that she would kill herself, police had said earlier.
The husband, a software engineer in Gurgaon, had told the police that they had regular fights due to "compatibility issues". They had an argument on the day of incident as well, following which she jumped from the terrace, police had said.
The victim's family had also given a complaint to police on June 27 saying that if anything happens to their daughter, Mayank would be responsible, police had said.
