New Delhi, Oct 4: In-laws of air hostess Anissia Batra, who allegedly committed suicide in Panchsheel Park on July 13, moved the Supreme Court against the Delhi High Court order denying them anticipatory bail.
Hearing the matter, the apex court told lawyer representing Anissia Batra’s in-laws that “It’s a very serious matter, can’t just brush it aside. ”
The Court further stated there’s evidence with police that shows cruelty against the deceased.
Following this, the top court fixed October 14 for the next hearing.
The development took place after the High Court on Sept 28 rejected the anticipatory bail to the in-laws of a flight attendant- R.S. Singhvi and his wife Sushma, saying WhatsApp messages and the emails on record establish a “continuous course of harassment and torture to the deceased” by them.
“Further, as noted from the supplementary statement of the father of the deceased, there was clear demand of Rs 10 lakh. Hence this court does not find it to be a fit case to grant of anticipatory bail to the petitioners”, Justice Mukta Gupta had said.
The flight attendant’s husband Mayank Singhvi was arrested on July 16.
Deceased’s family has alleged that it was a case of murder even as the police lodged a suicide case on July 15.
Anissia, who was an air hostess in a German airline, allegedly jumped off the terrace on July 13.
