Geetika suicide: Court again denies bail to Aruna Chaddah

Aruna Chaddah
New Delhi, Oct 15: Aruna Chaddah, facing prosecution along with former Haryana Minister Gopal Kanda in former air hostess Geetika Sharma suicide case, was today again refused bail by a Delhi court on the ground that she might tamper with the evidence.

Additional District and Sessions Judge SK Sarvaria dismissed the bail plea of 40-year-old Chaddah, who along with Kanda, is accused of abetting Geetika's suicide.

This was the second time that her bail plea was rejected since her arrest on Aug 8. Chaddah had sought bail on the ground that as the police had filed the charge sheet in the case and the investigation against her is complete, she should be released on bail in the light of "change" in circumstances.

Her counsel argued that even if a prima facie case is made out against her, she, being a woman, is entitled to bail as she is also a single parent to a minor daughter and has aged parents to look after.
