Police submitted their charge-sheet on Saturday, Oct 6. The former minister along with his aide were charged with abetment to suicide, criminal intimidation and destruction of evidence.
A Delhi court on Saturday took cognizance of the charge-sheet and a case 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. The police have booked Kanda under abatement to suicide case. He was forced to resign from his 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 judicial custody.
The suicide case hogged limelight when Kanda's alleged involvement 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 a 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.
