The elder sister of the man, who allegedly pushed a 21-year-old woman from the balcony of her house in outer Delhi’s Mangolpuri area “because she refused” his marriage proposal, was arrested on Wednesday.

Manju, accused Amit’s sister, was arrested from her house in Uttam Nagar, a police officer said, adding it was found during investigation she had a hand in the incident.

Amit is under arrest.

He allegedly wanted to threaten the woman into accepting his marriage proposal but she refused. Spurned, he allegedly pushed her from the balcony in Avantika Enclave.

He was accompanied by his two elder sisters and nephew when he had forcibly entered the woman’s house and fought with the woman and her family, police said.

The victim is currently undergoing treatment at Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital where her condition is said to be stable, they said.

Amit has been claiming the woman had borrowed Rs1 lakh from him and wasn’t returning, police said.

He had apparently befriended the woman on Facebook around two years ago and the two got into a relationship, they said.

Amit kept pressurising the woman and her family for marriage.

Her parents, however, refused since the man was unemployed.
