His parents, who are co-accused in the first information report, or FIR, have still not been arrested. My father served in the Army for over decades. We believe in the system, but we want things to be done properly,” said Karan Batra, Anissia’s brother, told reporters outside the court today.

The family’s lawyer says that WhatsApp and text messages recovered from their mobile phones clearly show the involvement of her in-laws and yet no action has been taken against them.
