A friend of the Delhi air hostess, who had committed suicide earlier this week, has revealed that she received a text message from the victim, saying that her husband had ‘forced her to take this extreme step.’

Speaking to ANI, the friend who did not wish to be named said, “I had received a message from her where she talked of killing herself saying her husband has driven her to this stage. She was a very strong girl. I can't believe that she took up this step.”

Before her death, Anissia had sent to her friend on WhatsApp in which she said, "He has locked me up, I need you to call the police, Plz come if you can, I’m locked up,"

Earlier, the 39-year-old flight attendant Anissia’s father, a Retired Major General RS Batra in his complaint to the police on June 27, 2018, had stated that he was filing the report as a precautionary against any harm which may come to his daughter from a husband or her in-laws to her safety or well-being.

"I am going to kill myself because Mayank has driven me to it," was her last message.

Speaking to ANI, Ishkaran Singh, the victim’s lawyer said, "A few minutes before her death, she messaged that her door has been locked by her husband. She was terrified and helpless. She was trying to reach out to people to help her and call the police. It was her dying declaration."

He further said that the victim's father had filed a complaint on June 27 regarding a threat to his daughter's life. However, the police paid no heed to it, Singh noted.

"They did not summon the accused, because if they had, we wouldn't have had to see this day," said Singh.

"They did not summon the accused, because if they had, we wouldn't have had to see this day," said Singh.

"Her messages which she sent just minutes before her death are a proof as to how her life was under threat and how she wanted the police to help her. I thank the media for highlighting the case. I am surprised how the man wasn't arrested even after 72 hours," he added.

Singh also revealed that Anissia Batra had kept documents hidden inside the house.

A Delhi court had also sent the husband of a female flight attendant, who allegedly committed suicide in south Delhi's Panchsheel Park on Friday, to two weeks' judicial custody.

Metropolitan Magistrate Anuj Kumar sent Mayank Singhvi to 14 days' judicial remand after Delhi police moved an application saying the accused was not required for custodial interrogation and he be sent to JC.
