New Delhi: A Delhi court on Wednesday remanded the
doctor couple, who had allegedly locked up their 13-year-old
maid in their flat here without food while going on a vacation
to Bangkok, in police custody for two days.
Sanjay Verma and his wife Sumita had returned to the
country on March 30, a day after the incident came to light
but were in hiding and were arrested today from near Lifestyle
mall in west Delhi`s Rajouri Garden following a tip off.
"The accused are sent to two days of police custody. They
should be produced before the court on Saturday," Metropolitan
Magistrate Ruchika Singla said.

investigate how the maid was kept locked in the house when
they had gone to Bangkok.
The court had yesterday denied anticipatory to them
saying that they had acted in an "inhuman" manner.
The couple approached the court after an FIR was lodged
against them and look-out notices were issued on April 2 by
the Delhi Police.
