New Delhi: Police on Monday arrested the husband of the female flight attendant, who allegedly committed suicide in south Delhi's Panchsheel Park on Friday, on the charge of dowry death.

The husband, Mayank Singhvi, was interrogated for an hour and was later arrested this evening. He would be produced before a magistrate on Tuesday, police said.


Mayank's wife, Anissia Batra (39), worked with a German airline. She allegedly jumped from the terrace of her house on Friday.  Mayank rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she was declared brought dead.

Before jumping off the terrace, Anisiya’s husband Mayank allegedly told police that she had sent a message to him saying that she would kill herself. Mayank, a software engineer in Gurgaon, told police that they had regular fights as there were "compatibility issues".

Anisiya’s family alleged that she was being tortured since she got married to Mayank Singhvi two years ago. The family further claims that Mayank was married earlier and he had hidden this from Ananias and her family.

Anisiya’s father had earlier also registered a case to the police saying that something happens to the daughter it would be because of Mayank and his family. They had also claimed that her husband had wiped all the evidence since the crime spot was not sealed by the police.

The couple were married on February 23, 2016 and they left for Dubai for their honeymoon a week after their marriage. Anissia's mother alleged that Mayank had beaten her daughter up inside the hotel lobby on the second day of the honeymoon.

She also alleged that after the incident, Mayank had promised to not drink but he did not adhere to his promise. Anissia's mother also said that she had stayed with them for a month from April 14 this year. She said that during this time, Mayank had threatened to oust her daughter from the house and she had saved him from Mayank many times.

The deceased woman's mother also alleged in her complaint that Mayank had messaged and called her on July 13 and abused her. On July 14, they were informed that Anissia had jumped from the terrace.
