Geetika Case: Kanda Sent to judicial custody till Sept 11
28.8.2012 (UNI) Former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, prime accused in the Geetika Sharma suicide case, was today sent to judicial custody till 11 September on the expiry of his police remand.
Delhi Police, in whose custody he was in for the past 10 days, did not seek further extension of his detention when they produced him before a Rohini Court Judge, Mr Devender Kumar Jungla, this afternoon.
The court on August 25 had extended his week-long police custody by another three days till today.
The police had raided many of Kanda’s residences and offices during his custody period and said to have seized material which could help nail Kanda, who has been charged with abetting suicide by Geetika.
Geetika, a former employee of Kanda’s now defunct alirlines MLDR, was found dead at her Ashok Vihar residence on August 5.
She had alleged in her suicide note that Kanda and his company’s HR manager Aruna Chadha made her life hell and that’s why she was taking the exteme step.
Earlier, Kanda, who was asked to appear before police for investigation in the case, did not do so and went underground.
He applied for anticipatory bail which was rejected twice - first by a Sessions Court and then by Delhi High Court.
Kanda, who evaded police for ten days from August 9 when he was called for questioning by the police, surrendered at a police station in the wee hours of August 18. UNI
