The matter will come up for hearing on Tuesday.

On August 9, Kanda's anticipatory bail plea was dismissed by a sessions court that said allegations against him were grave and serious in nature and that his application was without merit.

Kanda, who owned the MDLR Airlines where the 23-year-old Geetika was earlier employed, was booked for abetment to her suicide and criminal intimidation.

Kanda, former minister of state for home in Haryana, has been on the run since.

Geetika hanged herself in her north Delhi's Ashok Vihar house Aug 5 and left behind a suicide note, blaming Kanda for her extreme step. Her autopsy report Friday confirmed there was no foul play.
