Business executive Ankita, 28, had allegedly killed herself by jumping off an apartment located in a Mulund highrise on March 7. Police have arrested the husband and the mother-in-law of Ankita Aiyer for allegedly driving her to commit suicide last week, said an official on Sunday.

Ankita and Rohan got married in 2018, after they got to know each other via a matrimonial site. The couple also has a three-month-old daughter.
