Mayank Singhvi was arrested Monday evening. His wife, Anissia Batra (39), worked with a German airline. She allegedly jumped from the terrace of her house on Friday. Her husband rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she was declared brought dead.
Advocate Ishkaran Singh Bhandari, appearing for Anissia Batra urged the court that a look out notice be issued against Mayank Singhvi's parents as they subjected Ms Batra to a lot of atrocities and have not been arrested as yet.
The police told the court that they were doing the needful in that regard.

She was taken to Max Hospital and the police were informed. She succumbed to injuries at the hospital.
Her husband, a software engineer in Gurgaon, told the police that they had regular fights as there were "compatibility issues".
They had an argument on Friday as well, following which she jumped from the terrace, police said.
In her complaint, Anissia Batra's mother alleged that Mayank Singhvi used to regularly abuse her daughter.
The victim's family also alleged that he would often demand money from Anissia Batra.
They had also given a complaint to police on June 27 saying that if anything happens to their daughter, Mayank would be responsible.
