Aruna Chadha, an aide of former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda and co-accused in Geetika Sharma suicide case, on Saturday claimed the former airhostesses took the extreme step because she was upset with her parents.
Pleading for bail before district judge and additional sessions judge SK Sarvaria, Chadha said that she be allowed bail as she has a seven-year-old daughter to look after.
Senior advocate Ramesh Gupta, appearing for Chadha, said his client had no role in driving Geetika to commit suicide and that she had written in her August 4 suicide note that she was upset that her parents and brother are unhappy.
"In her (Geetika) mind, she was continuously unhappy as her parents were unhappy," he argued while referring to Geetika's suicide note.
"Geetika's parents were the ones who had a word with her before she took the extreme step and when they could not realise that she was thinking of ending her life, how can Chadha be held as intentionally aiding and abetting the move"? the counsel argued.
