New Delhi, Aug 17: Former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda is reported to have fled the country to neighbouring Nepal and is staying there along with his family members.

Delhi police had earlier alerted all airports in the country and also issued an alert in the border areas informing about Kanda. However, it seems that Kanda succeeded to dupe the cops and escape from India.

Police have been searching for Kanda who has been missing since Aug 8 when he was summoned for questioning in connection with Geetika Sharma suicide case.

Police have so far raided more then 100 places and questioned more then 60 people to locate Kanda, but all their efforts have gone in vain.

After tracing Kanda's mobile phone networks, Delhi police sources informed that the Kanda family might be in Nepal. The Nepal land border is highly porous, where his crossing over would be easy. However, other sources claimed that Kanda and family might be in Dubai.

Non-bailable arrest warrant has been issued against Kanda. The Delhi High Court on Friday, Aug 17 will hear his anticipatory bail plea. The verdict of the court is expected to be declared by 4 pm.

Kanda, who was the owner of the defunct MDLR airlines, is the main accused in the suicide case as Geetika in her suicide note blamed both Kanda and another MDLR employee Aruna Chaddha for driving her to commit suicide.

Geetika was found dead in her apartment in Delhi on Aug 5. She was an ex-employee of MDLR airlines. Probe showed Geetika and Kanda's alleged affair. Recently, Nupur Mehta, who catapulted to fame after she was alleged to be a honeytrap in the cricket match-fixing scandal, claimed that Geetika and Kanda were pretty close and had been on several foreign trips together including Singapore, Dubai, Macau, London and Hong Kong.

Spilling more beans on the infamous relationship, Nupur stated that Geetika had celebrated her 18th birthday at Kanda's farmhouse, a day after the birthday celebration of his own daughter.

Nupur along with Geetika was working with MDLR airlines. She joined the Goa casino in 2009 when MDLR got defunct. The casino has also been owned by Kanda.

Nupur has been quoted as saying, "When I joined, I was surprised to see that Kanda had retained all his airhostesses and they worked in the casino. He had an influential circle of friends and acquaintances, including high- profile Congress politicians and businessmen, who visited the casino."
