A woman whose father was a high-ranking military officer is now facing the prospect of a long wait to meet him.
Anwar is a former member of the Indian army, serving as an intelligence officer in a unit that took part in the controversial Operation Blue Star.
The officer was a close friend of the then army chief General R K Singh and the then defence minister Manohar Parrikar.
Anwar’s father was the former chief of the Air Force and later a senior air force officer.
Her father was arrested by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) for allegedly having a “secret relationship” with General Singh.
She is now fighting a legal battle with the army for the right to meet her father.
Anwars father has been detained for a month on the basis of an order of a court in a case of treason.
Anwars mother is also fighting for her son’s release.
The case has triggered a huge outpouring of anger in the country.
The army chief, who was recently suspended from office, has defended his decision to take his son into custody.
“The SIT’s case against my father is an effort to punish him for his alleged actions,” Singh said in a statement to the media on Thursday.
“I was told that I am responsible for him in a manner similar to what a public servant is expected to do.”
