New Delhi, Feb 18: Days after his mother's fatal death, 22-year-old Ankit Sharma finally broke his silence on the controversial case following which he lost two members of his family - his mother Anuradha and sister Geetika.

In an article published in NDTV, Ankit raised fingers at the main accused of two suicide cases - Gopal Kanda. Ankit said that her mother was upset with the former Haryana minister who allegedly had harassed Anuradha mentally in court room.

Speaking about the difficulties post Geetika's death, Ankit said, "It destroyed our confidence to see Kanda all smiles in court. My mother yelled and shouted in the courtroom, but nothing happened."

"It was difficult to get lawyers, no one wanted to support us because we were taking on a powerful man," added Ankit.

According to Ankit, his mother Anuradha was the strongest person in the family who had challenged Kanda and his aide Aruna Chaddha. Recalling his mother's words, Ankit quoted his mother saying, "We have lost her (Geetika), let us try and interact more as a family, whatever happens tell me, don't bottle up your feelings, together we can find a solution."

Since the trial began in the abetting Geetika's suicide, Geetika's family had been alleging that Kanda was pressurising them to withdraw the complaint against him.

23-year-old Geetika, a former air-hostess in Kanda's airline, was found dead at her Ashok Vihar residence in northwest Delhi on Aug 5, 2012. Geetika had in her suicide note said that she was ending her life due to "harassment" by Kanda and his aide Aruna Chaddha, co-accused in the case.

After six moths, Geetika's mother too had committed suicide in the same room of their residence in Delhi. In her suicide note, Anuradha had wrote, "Geetika's death is responsible for my death. And Aruna Chaddha and Gopal Kanda are responsible for hers."

P Karunakaran, DCP, northwest was quoted as saying, "We found a suicide note in the house. Anuradha Sharma was depressed. The note says Gopal Kanda and Aruna Chaddha were responsible for Geetika's death."
