Ankita Singh, a Bollywood starlet and a former associate of Kanda's casino in Goa, is believed to have returned from Singapore and reported to have expressed her desire to meet the police.
The investigating officials were on a look out for Ankita, whose name figures in Geetika Sharma's suicide note. Geetika, a former employee of the now defunct MDLR airlines owned by Kanda, wrote in her suicide letter, "He (Kanda) has illegal relationship with a woman named Ankita and has a girl child also with her."
Police sources did not confirm the news about Ankita and her wish to meet the officials. But they have claimed that Ankita's statement might change the entire scenario.
Earlier, police officials informed that Geetika's family members had also mentioned about Ankita saying that the starlet used to call Geetika's family members and urged them to force Geetika to rejoin MDLR.
Ankita and Geetika were not in good terms as both of them were allegedly engaged with Kanda. Ankita reportedly had called Kanda's wife and informed about his extra-marital affairs.
Another starlet Nupur Mehta too ignited the controversy after speaking about Kanda-Ankita relationship. According to Nupur, Geetika and Ankita had a fight and the former had lodged an FIR against the latter saying that Ankita had trespassed into her apartment in Goa and snatched a laptop and a bag along with her passport.
Meanwhile, Kanda, whose police custody ended on Tuesday, Aug 28, has been sent to 14-day judicial custody till Sep 11. He has been denying his role in the suicide case. He has so far stated the he had no connection with Geetika before her death, though her family members claimed that a phone call from Kanda made Geetika restless and she finally committed suicide.
Geetika, in her suicide note, had also claimed that Kanda and his another employee Aruna Chaddha had harassed her mentally and forced her to end her life.
