New Delhi: Former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda, key accused in the Geetika Sharma suicide case, was today sent to 14-day judicial custody by a Delhi court.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate D K Jangala remanded Kanda to judicial custody till September 11 after the Delhi police said he was not required for further custodial interrogation.
Kanda was produced before the court after expiry of three days of police custody which was extended on August 25 after seven days of custodial interrogation.
Kanda was arrested on August 18 after he had surrendered before the police, almost 13 days after former air hostess Geetika Sharma was found dead on August 5 at her Ashok Vihar residence in north-west Delhi.
In her suicide note, Geetika had alleged that Kanda and one of the MDLR employees Aruna Chaddha were harassing her to rejoin the former minister’s firm after she left the job.
