court denies kanda shield against arrest

New Delhi :  A Delhi court on Thursday dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of Haryana's former minister Gopal Goyal Kanda who was called by police for questioning over the suicide of former flight attendant Geetika Sharma here on Aug 5.

Additional Sessions Judge Rajnish Bhatnagar dismissed the bail plea of Kanda, who failed to appear before police for questioning Wednesday.

Kanda, who owned the now-defunct MDLR Airlines where Geetika was employed earlier, faces charges of criminal intimidation.

The former Haryana minister's employee Aruna Chaddha, who was arrested on Wednesday, was sent to police custody till Aug 11 by another Delhi court.

Geetika left a suicide note blaming Kanda and Chaddha for her extreme step, police said.

After Kanda's airlines ceased to function in 2009, Geetika was given a job in another company owned by him. She later quit the job, police said.

Geetika's brother Gaurav alleged that his sister was being constantly mentally harassed by Kanda and Chaddha.

Kanda, who began his career as a slipper (chappal) seller and later became a multi-millionaire property dealer, floated the MDLR Airline in 2007.

He was elected as an Independent legislator from Sirsa constituency in the October 2009 assembly polls in Haryana and joined the Congress-led government headed by Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

He was made minister of state for home by Hooda despite having been named in police cases earlier.
