Now the hide and seek is over. Gopal Kanda who had been hiding from police for 10 days surrendered before police at Bharat Nagar police station at 4 am. He surrendered13 days after the suicide of his former employee, who accused him of abetting her suicide. He was arrested.
“Kanda has surrendered and we have arrested him,” P Karunakaran, Deputy Commissioner of Police (North-West) told a news agency.
His employee, Aruna Chaddha, a senior functionary with now defunct MDLR airlines, has already been arrested and is in judicial custody in connection with the suicide of Geetika Sharma, who allegedly took her life on August 5 in her Ashok Vihar residence.
In her suicide note, Geetika had alleged that Kanda and Chaddha were harassing her to rejoin the former minister’s firm after she left the job.
The anticipatory bail plea of Kanda had also been dismissed by the Delhi High Court earlier yesterday.
On Thursday Non Bailable Warrant (NBW) was issued against former Haryana Minister Gopal Kanda. Police was asked to execute the arrest warrant by August 24 by the court.
