Crime Branch to probe Delhi air hostess suicide case

Delhi Police's Crime Branch will probe the air hostess suicide case after the matter was transferred from the jurisdiction of the Delhi Police.

The case pertains to the death of an air hostess, Anissia Batra, who jumped off the terrace of her house on July 13 after a heated argument with her husband.

Before her death, the air hostess had allegedly sent a message to her friend on WhatsApp, stating that she was locked up in a room by her husband, Mayank Singhvi. She had also asked her friend to inform the police of the same.

Soon after the incident, Batra's husband was arrested and sent to 14-days judicial custody.

An anticipatory bail plea was filed by Singhvi's parents but was subsequently rejected by Delhi's Saket Court on July 20.

Last week, the Delhi High Court had granted interim protection from arrest to Batra's in-laws and sought a status report from the Delhi Police.
