The husband of the Delhi air hostess who allegedly committed suicide in south Delhi's Panchsheel Park has been arrested by the police, according to several media reports.

The accused, Mayank Singhvi, will be produced before a magistrate on Tuesday, ANI reported.

Mayank was arrested after being interrogated by the Delhi Police for an hour over the alleged suicide of his wife Anissia Batra, News18 reported.

Anissia's friend, speaking to Firstpost on the condition of anonymity, said it was a "violent marriage" right from the beginning. The Batras feared the police would treat Anissia's death as a suicide, but thankfully they lodged a case of dowry death under Section 304B of the Indian Penal Code, the friend also said. Prior to Mayank's arrest, the Batra family feared he'd be able to ward off the police by saying it was a suicide and he'd rushed to the terrace after Anissia sent him a message about taking her life, the friend added.
