New Delhi [India] Nov 2 (ANI): The in-laws of air hostess Anissia Batra, who committed suicide in July, were on Thursday taken to police custody by the Investigating Officer (IO) after a Delhi court rejected their bail plea.
The in-laws, RS Singhvi, and Sushma Singhvi surrendered themselves in the court on Thursday morning and moved the bail application for the same which was later rejected.
Earlier this month, the couple moved the Supreme Court against the Delhi High Court's order denying them anticipatory bail.
The bench of Justices Abhay Manohar Sapre and Indu Malhotra observed that allegations against the in-laws are "very serious."
"It's a very serious matter can't just brush it aside, the evidence shows cruelty against the victim," the apex court had said.
On July 13, the Delhi-based air hostess had jumped off the terrace of her house after an alleged heated argument with her husband, Mayank Singhvi.
Before her death, the air hostess had reportedly sent a message to her friend on WhatsApp, stating that she was locked up in a room by Singhvi. She had also asked her friend to inform the police about the same. Subsequently, the police arrested Batra's husband in the case. (ANI)
