A Delhi court has extended till May 16, the judicial custody of the dermatologist husband of a 31-year-old AIIMS doctor who allegedly committed suicide due to mental torture caused by his sexual orientation.

Metropolitan Magistrate Sachin Sangwan remanded Dr Kamal Vedi, 34, to judicial custody after the Delhi Police informed the court that investigation in the case was going on.

Vedi was arrested on May 19 from his residence at AIIMS quarters in south Delhi after his wife, Priya Vedi, an anaesthetist at AIIMS, was found dead with her wrist slit at a hotel in Paharganj where she had checked-in after a fight with her husband.
