“Around 4am, Amar called me and told me that Babita has been thrown off the roof by a ‘ghost’. We reached Prakash hospital and doctors asked us to shift her to Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi. We asked him what he meant by a ghost and then he kept changing his version,” said Babita’s brother Satinder.
Satinder later went to the police station and filed a complaint against Singh, who works in a private company in RK Puram, Delhi, as office assistant .
Satinder alleged that Singh has been demanding dowry from them.
In the complaint, the family members alleged that the couple had a fight on May 26 the family was called Ghari Chaukhandi to intervene and patch up the matter. The complaint states that Babita was beaten up by Singh that time.
