New Delhi, Nov 19: Bringing more embarrassment for former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, Delhi High Court on Monday, Nov 19 refused to give him bail over Geetika Sharma suicide case.
Kanda, the owner of MDLR Airlines where Geetika was an employee, is the main accused of the suicide case. It is been months that the former minister has been left to suffer in jail.
Kanda along with his aide Aruna Chaddha was charged with abetment to suicide, criminal intimidation and destruction of evidence.
A Delhi court earlier had taken cognisance of the charge-sheet and a case was filed under Sections 306, 506, 201, 467, 468 and 471 of the Indian Penal Code and 34/66 of the IT Act.
Geetika committed suicide in her apartment in Delhi on Aug 5. In her suicide note, Geetika had alleged that Kanda and Aruna Chaddha were responsible for compelling her to end her life.
Kanda was forced to resign from his ministerial post following his alleged role in Geetika's suicide case. Police arrested Chaddha but failed to take Kanda into their custody as he absconded. Later, he surrendered himself and was sent to judicial custody.
Geetika suicide case hogged the limelight when Kanda's alleged romantic relationship with Geetika was revealed. The former minister allegedly had an extra-marital affair with the former air-hostess.
However, Kanda's wife rejected to accept such allegations against her husband. Many other shocking facts were also reported when Bollywood starlet Nupur Mehta stated about Kanda's relationship with another woman Ankita Singh with whom Geetika had a bitter relation.
Soon after Geetika's suicide, Nupur, an ex-employee of now defunct MDLR airlines, stated that Kanda married Ankita and both of them have a love-child.
Geetika had filed a legal case against Ankita who had trespassed into Geetika's apartment in Goa and threatened the former to resign from Kanda's company.
