Police mull slapping fresh charge on Kanda

chandigarh Updated: Aug 23, 2012 11:40 IST

The Delhi Police are planning to slap a fresh charge of destruction of evidence against former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda, arrested in the suicide case of his former employee, and question an actress who worked with the deceased in his firm.

Special commissioner of police (law and order) Dharmendra Kumar said they would slap the charge of destruction of evidence against Kanda.

He said they were "piecing together" the evidences collected in the case of suicide of Geetika Sharma, who took her life on August 5 in her New Delhi residence alleging that Kanda and his aide Aruna Chaddha harassed her.

"We will charge him with destruction of evidence. We have not charged him yet in this connection. We will do it," he told reporters. Asked whether actress Nupur Mehta, who worked with Geetika in Kanda's casino in Goa, Kumar said: "Everybody will be interrogated."

He further said that investigations were on in connection with the deletion of the Facebook account of Geetika.

On Tuesday, police slapped sections of the Information Technology Act against him for allegedly sending false electronic messages leading to harassment of the deceased.

Kanda had, on Saturday morning, surrendered before police after evading arrest for 10 days. Sharma, a former employee of his now-defunct MDLR airline, accused him and another senior colleague Chaddha of harassing her.
