Anissia Batra’s brother Karan Batra said she contacted them just before she died.”My sister messaged us to call the police. She said Mayank had locked her in a room. ‘…because of him my life is going to go, please don’t leave him,’ she wrote. We don’t know if he pushed her or she jumped, but we have been trying to get them arrested and police aren’t helping,” Karan Batra told reporters. The family alleged that Anissia Batra was being tortured since she got married to Mayank Singhvi two years ago. The man, they said, is an alcoholic who often beat her up and demanded money.”Last month, my parents had to come from Chandigarh. Mayank even hit my mother. My father, who served in the Army for over four decades, filed a complaint on June 27. They had to go back because of my mother’s medical condition,” Karan Batra told reporters.The police say they have sealed the area and locked their room, but “Mayank went there last night, he has a spare key… they have removed all the evidence,” Karan Batra alleged.(Image showing  Anissia with her husband is from FB)
