Geetika case:Grilling time for Kanda, sent to police custody

Gopal Kanda and Geetika Sharma
New Delhi, Aug 18: Finally, Delhi police got the custody of Gopal Kanda who has evaded questioning so far and absconded. A court on Saturday, Aug 18 sent him to 7-day police custody.

Kanda on Saturday surrendered himself and later he was arrested. He has been booked in abatement to suicide case of 23-year-old Geetika Sharma who was found dead in her apartment in Delhi on Aug 5.

Kanda was missing since Aug 8 when Delhi police summoned him for questioning. Sources reported that Kanda might have fled either to Dubai or Nepal.

Non-bailable arrest warrant has been issued against him and Delhi High Court on Saturday rejected his anticipatory bail plea.

Geetika was an ex-employee of MDLR airlines and Kanda was the owner of the now defunct airlines. Geetika mentioned Kanda and another MDLR employee Aruna Chaddha's names in her suicide note. Delhi police have already arrested Chaddha.

Soon after Kanda's arrest on Saturday, news surfaced that Geetika's Facebook account has been deactivated. Police, during an investigation, were shocked as Geetika's FB account was activated even after her death.

Geetika's family members informed that they were not aware about Geetika's Facebook password. Police sources said that Aruna Chaddha, a co-accused in the case, is believed to have got passwords of several employees of MDLR airlines.

Many started suspecting that Gopal Kanda might have used his power to deactivate Geetika's Facebook account in order to destroy evidences which could prove his alleged role in her death.

Meanwhile, Geetika's brother Ankit Sharma stated, "I hope the investigation is impartial. He had sufficient time to destroy evidence against him. His statement should be recorded on camera."
