The in-laws of chartered accountant Nidhi Gupta were granted anticipatory bail by the Dindoshi sessions court on Wednesday.

On March 8, Nidhi had committed suicide by jumping off the gallery of a 21-storey building at Sahyadri Housing Complex, Malad (East), after flinging her two children — Gaurav, 6, and Mihika, 3.

Her brother-in-law Rakesh, father-in-law Murarilal, and mother-in-law Sangeeta were granted bail after producing a surety amount of Rs 50,000 and on the condition that they would produce themselves at the Dindoshi police station every Tuesday and Friday.

“If they fail to come to the police station, we will inform the court about their absence,” said Vinayak Kakade, senior inspector, Dindoshi police station.

Earlier this week, the police had arrested Nidhi's husband Pawan and sister-in-law Sunita.

They have been remanded to police custody till March 21.

The in-laws maintain there was no tension in the family. They claim they are unable to figure out the motive behind Nidhi's decision.

However, Nidhi’s father Bimal Jalan, alleged that his daughter was being mentally tortured and harassed by Pawan and his family.

Based on Jalan’s statement, the police registered a case of abetment to suicide and dowry harassment on March 11.
