The second autopsy report of a female flight attendant, who allegedly committed suicide in Panchsheel Park here, endorses the first that said she first sustained injury to her neck, a senior police officer said today.

Thirty-nine-year-old Anissia Batra allegedly jumped off from the terrace of her residence following an argument with her husband Mayank Singhvi on Friday. 

He was arrested on charges of dowry death. 

The second autopsy was conducted as her family said that the first post-mortem was not videographed. 

The officer said the second autopsy confirmed the findings of the first report, which had said that she had first sustained injury to her neck, indicative of the fact that she had jumped herself and was not pushed. 

She had sustained 15 injuries to her body but the neck injury led to instantaneous death, he added. 

The doctors, who had carried out the autopsy, spoke to Anissia's family and explained to them the nature of her injuries to remove their doubts, the officer said. Meanwhile, Ishkaran Singh Bhandari, Anissia's family's lawyer alleged that the family suspected that Mayank had tampered with evidence since the crime spot was not sealed after the incident. 

He had 72 hours before his arrest to tamper with the scene, the lawyer said. 

The police said that they have all the exhibits and no need was felt to seal the scene since all the clues had been collected.
